My granddaughter’s 5th Birthday is in a couple weeks.
She loves to organize her things and play with boxes.
She’s started to ride horses a little, hence the mini tack box.
The main box and lid is aromatic Cedar and has black cherry slip feathers.
The two trays are Cypress with 1/4” plywood bottoms.
I’m finishing it with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. The color is really starting to pop.

I’m pleased with the handle design I created for the sliding lid and really happy with the two trays—they drop in on a cushion of air with a piston fit.
