These are a few of the boxes made this year. The boxes with small legs are just that, medium sized jewelry boxes. The others are boxes with secrets (see my earlier projects postings to see how they work). The box with the blue lid medallion depicts the Alaskan flag ( made for a friend in Fairbanks). Questions welcome and comments please. Thanks for looking and a great big Merry Christmas to all.

Is that spalted maple? I have some spalted maple from a tree I cut down in my front yard that looks just like that.

You did well with these boxes. I noticed a centered point on some of them. Very interesting. Great work.
