This is the second box that I made while building the retirement box for my office manager. I usually build boxes 2 or 3 at a time with slight differences or different wood. My wife liked this one so we kept it.

Excellent color and outstanding grain “pop”. Well done.

I like everything about that box – design, grain, legs. Really nice. I know why your wife wanted to keep it.

Another very nice box. Smart idea to do a few when needing to build one. The wood is outstanding.
