    Okay, Box Done

    Here are the pictures. I hope my Granddaughter is happy with it, sure was fun to make. Curly Maple and a Rosewood. Finished with Tung Oil. I tried some veneering on the bottoms where the hardboard would have shone. I certainly didn't have the proper tools for but I think it will stay in place. This is my first box, other than few jigs, so I'm open to suggestions, criticism, whatever.
