Turned from cherry (fruit tree) for my wife (who is the mother of my children) for Mother’s Day. It is finished with shellac and wax. The combination of the wood and the shellac makes this amazing sweet smell that is very noticeable when handling the box and opening the lid. It soothes the soul!

Thanks for looking!

Love the grain on that piece. Cherry is my favorite wood of all time to work with.
I like how the top overhangs the box a little. I bet that helps open it up.
Great gift!!!
