Box from pallets

Several years ago I snagged some pallets, one made from red oak. Out of this I made some boxes for the shop.
Then just the other day my step-daughter wanted a box to keep stuff from the triplets. You must understand that each kid has 10 fingers and thumbs times 3. That equals 30 total 4 year old very fast moving digits.
So anyway time was short so I remodeled this box to make a safe hiding place from the trips. The inlay is mahogany and finish is tung oil. Flocking is PSA felt store bought.

Some of my pics are not oriented right . Never had this problem before. Any ideas.

NIce box, the inlay detail is great. Without locks, though, won’t those 30 digits get this open pretty quickly?

What a beautiful box.
She is sure a lucky girl.
So wonderful that a pallet can become this.
Best thoughts,

Thats a real nice box rehab. Looks like it’s already gift wrapped. All it needs is a bow. Well done.

Very nice box and what a great catch getting a pallet made of red oak. The oak has come up really nice and the inlay is beautiful…. excellent job.
