Nicely done. The maple leaves seem familiar. I like it.

Thanks all for your kind comments. You don’t have to be Canadian to enjoy the maple leaves :-) Isn’t that right, John!

This would be perfect as a gift regardless of the occasion. The carvings are so intricate that they look unique and grand. I could use an additional storage chest anytime, especially one that looks as stunning as this masterpiece!

I’d really love to see what the inside of this box looks like. The designs on the side of this storage box look really great too – an idea would be if you could somehow carve out the dark areas and make it look like a grill for the side of the box! That would make it a great airing box for things!
