    Smile Box Swap Pictures

    Hi everyone! I hope no one minds, but I thought it might be easier to start a new thread for the pictures. I received my box from Brent last night. Here are a couple of pictures of it.
    Brent, correct me if I am wrong, but I believe it is cherry and bloodwood. The box looks great, and thanks for the pen too.

    You got the Cherry right. The other wood is Paduak. The pen is also made of Paduak. Just a simple tung oil finish on it.

    Thanks for the pictures! I got flustered about trying to get it in the mail and forgot to take any!

    The UPS guy has been here every day this week so far. I warned him that I'd see him again tomorrow! Guess I've been a little busy trying to prop up the economy...

    Looking forward to it!
