Gave the Grand kids a choice as to what box they liked the best of the once I had made over the years and this was the almost unanimous choice which surprised me .
Made from ebonised red oak and aluminum trim with velvet liners .

Excellent choice as would be all of your boxes! I like the way the red velvet contrasts with the dark ebonised red oak; I even like the title name you gave it! Nice work as usual Kiefer! Merry Christmas!

Great looking box and a good choice, although as Tony said any any of your boxes would be a good choice.

I think I would have chosen the piano box there in the background cause its just cool and a bit funky, or jazzy, or R&R, as far as boxes go.

I am sure they favored the oak one because they know how difficult it is to cut tight through-tenons.

Are those true tenons, or faux tenons?

The Kids do have powers. They must to be able to choose among your boxes. I would never be able to do that. I do lean a little toward the oriental themed ones, but then there are the textured ones, and that piano box really is lovely….
See, they certainly have powers I don’t have. :-)

All the best of the season Klaus.

All your boxes are great, however, at times one gets lost with all the detail… too much going on for simple minds.
