Just a little box made of cherry. Hand cut dovetails. Inside compartment is maple, and the bottom is poplar. Mostly made from scraps I had in the basement. Shellac finish. Looking at the photo of the lid, I noticed that the grain looks a little like a girl’s face. Quite unintentional on my part, but it’s interesting.

Talk about letting the wood speak to you, you’ve really done a fine job of listening. Very nice work also.
