Nice box. I especially like that wrap at the front, gives it some depth. Nice pick on that piece of Cedar too.

Thanks for posting.

My thoughts exactly. Really sets the whole box off. Great work!

Jim, great job. I like the wood contrast and the overall work. I wonder how it would look if that great edge inlay on the front, which sets the whole look off, were extended into a tab emulating a rock that would serve as a lift for the lid? I like the subject matter and have always admired James Earle Frasier’s sculpture (first done in 1894.) To me it has always represented those who gave their all, but were defeated, not by the enemy, but by the inevitable surge of history and time.

Very nicely done, I like subject matter too.
The choice of woods made this special.

Congrats on very succesful double bevel scroll saw inlay project. Myself also tried this technic with some sign on wooden wallet -so challenging! Very nice box!
