A project i did with my kids for Christmas gifts. We had a blast making them, there a simple ‘fitted lid’ design. I used Lacewood for most, my father in law got the beautiful maple with purpleheart trim….thanks for looking..

Those are beautiful!! Just curious if you or the kids had any type of reaction to the lacewood? I have heard of numerous people having allergic reactions to lacewood and some of the more popular exotics

Keep up the great work.
