This is the second gift I made for our church silent auction, a box made of Ash and Walnut, with a Cherry handle. Boxes are fun to make especially when you have good friends like Maplerock and Boxguy to teach you, they are the experts, I’m just a student. I have no idea what it auctioned for but I don’t think it was much. My gift.

Thanks For Your Time, Take Care, Joe

Very nice box. I’m betting it went for more than you think. Good job.

Looks great. Walnut and ash look good together…and I really like the design of the handle.

Joe, thanks for the shout out. This is a beautiful box. I like the soft lines and the lovely mix of woods. Good work. The walnut splines help draw everything together. Good to see you posting your work. This is a great website.
