Hello LJ’s,

Last week I spent some time on these boxes. I made a lot of pictures and put them together as a slide-show. Have fun watching and if there are any questions feel free to ask!!!

Enjoyed the video (and the music). Is that Vicci Martinez from “The Voice”?

I really like the heavy Wenge on these and the spalted panels are great! Excellent selections for these boxes.
