    Godd looking box. The only thing that I don't like is the way the finial meets the walnut.

    Steve, Like Mohammad I had some reservations about the transition between the finnel and the walnut but the more I look at it the more I like it.

    I like it! I have not graduated to finials yet, but your piece looks balanced.

    Very nicely done Steve!
    I like the contrasting wood.

    Very nice Stephan. Well done. Aren't those fun to make? I have made several after watching her DVD.
