I salvaged a 4”x4” walnut post out of a old barn and used it to make this box. I turned a recess in the base to hold the lid when it is open. It is decorated with a piece of silver wire in the lid.

I like the recessed base. . . and the wire. Details make the difference.

Fantastic turning. Wonderful finish and the wire gives it a little extra style. Well done.

Keep it up.

I love it. I like the recess on the bottom for the lid.
