Walnut box

Oliver Springs, TN
Finished this one up today. The bottom panel and the bottom of the tray are figured maple. This one is a graduation gift for my principal's daughter. They have a family farm and over the last few years he's given me a few pieces of walnut. I was able to get enough to make the box from walnut from their farm.

Wonderful box John! Hope you wrote some sentiment on the bottom of the box to insure its prominence in their family for generations to come.

Thanks Jon! I have been putting something on the bottom of all of them. I guess I'm kind of humble about most things really. For a long time I wouldn't sign stuff I made. Then I'd have people wanting me to sign stuff so I started. I still feel odd when I do. I guess I look at stuff I make and think it's not worthy of me signing or I don't want people knowing I made it!:)

We had an exchange student from Italy this year. She is the absolute funniest kid I've been around. She had to go back home early because of the virus. I almost had her a box made when she left. I decided to mail it to her which was probably a mistake on my part. I sent it on 4/1 and it still hasn't gotten to her yet. Last tracking info was from it leaving Miami on 4/3. The tracking info said it would take 5 to 10 days.
