Hello everyone.
I made this little gift box. Use simple pine wood. At the end of the box itself, give some thought touch to highlight and do flashy. So I happened to add a pair of legs.
I was very happy with the result and hope you like my aunt, who is the recipient of that gift.
Use pine, the legs are Kiri, and the grip of the cover is cedar.
Finishing with water-based varnish.
A big hug to everyone.

Buen trabajo mi amigo. Es simple pero elegante, la carpintería es bonito y limpio, y es un regalo del corazón. Yo lo llamo un éxito. Bien hecho!

I like this. It is well built and is a sturdy box. Also like how you set the top on it. Nice work.

Quedó muy linda Gerardo, felicitaciones.
Crítica constructiva:
- usar la misma madera para las patas y el tirador puede mejorar el aspecto general, porque sino compiten las formas con los colores de las maderas, y las maderas también compiten entre sí.
- como opción, pintar las patas y el tirador con un color resaltaría la madera principal (el pino).
;) Un abrazo.
