This was a Christmas present for my girlfriend. A keepsake box made of oak and brazilian cherry. Lots of little details in a small box like this. A great learning project!

Keep it up.

Very nice. The wood choice is great. I also really like the accent strips on the ends.

I really love this. It’s simple, but extremely elegant. I love the geometry to it. Makes me really want to get into box making :)

Great looking box.Your girlfriend got a really nice christmas present. Boxmaking can be addictive…I just started making some boxes a few weeks ago and am really enjoying it.
