    Another box

    I made this walnut keepsake box for my great-granddaughter who was born last October.
    My intent was to have the grain pattern wrap up the front, across the top, and continue down the back. And, also, incorporate the sides to match. I think I did it.
    Can't really tell if she's happy with it but, my granddaughter (her mother) was tickled. That's what it is all about for me.

    Lovely job indeed on the grain match!

    I like the understated decoration as well, allows the wood to show through nicely.

    Roger you milked that beautiful piece of wood for everything it had. That is a real "keeper." It should be treasured through a lifetime.

    Enjoy,
