I made this box for my new granddaughter’s first Christmas. I made different memory boxes for my children and now my grandchildren for their first Christmas. This is made out of a nice piece of ribbon stripe African mahogany. Hand cut dovetails. This was also the first time I used spray flock. I will post latter my twin grandson boxes that I also had to make this year. This will be something to remember me when I’m gone.

That’s a very nice keepsake box. I really like the addition of the mirror.

Damn ssc’ that is some neat work…

However if HDA spells Hailey, I’m gonna have to rewrite the Oxford...

Just having a go and hope not to get blacklisted… great job.
