    Poker Box

    A little Wooden box I am working on. Friends is getting married on Saterday, and this is their gift. I'm putting a poker set inside.

    Poker box finished

    And the final product. Finished just in time - the wedding is this afternoon.

    It is an outside wedding, and it is pouring down as we speak .......

    Ooh, that came out looking nice. Great job, Uys. What did you line the inside of the top with?
