That wood cleaned up very nicely! I really like the way you did the splines, not just the contrast, but also the angles and different lengths. Well done, I’m sure she loves it.

Nice job Ike, your work is very good, your design and construction looks great, I like the way you have the lid sit in the box, and your keys are set in just the right spot. I use a lot of pallet wood as well, and the identification is a real hassle, those pallets don’t have any choice and it’s up to us to get them where they truly belong, you are doing a great job of that, thanks for sharing
