    Lidded box for my granddaughter

    Finished this up this afternoon for her 12th birthday. The box and lid knob are figured Walnut and the lid is fiddleback Cherry. About 3.5" wide and just over 2" high.

    Very nice, Billy. That cherry looks awesome, too. (The walnut ain't half bad, either.)

    I just really like stuff like this, simple (in relative terms ), lets the wood show through and well executed. I'd take a piece like this any day over one of the more complicated art forms.. but then I'm just a simple country boy.

    Very nice! The two woods contrast each other well!
