Nice work. I like it. The striking color combination works really well.

Great job on this one.

OK, I like this box is almost as much as the piano one, still beautiful. Where can I get some white aspen? The closest I see around here is Baltic Birch. How is white aspen to work? I’d prefer it to be about like oak for what I want.

Thanks, Steve
