This box is made with reclaimed chestnut from a barn built circa 1859/60 that will be a present for my granddaughter’s first Christmas. I wrote a blog documenting the process which shows this box starting from a really crappy looking piece of wood to this beauty. See the blog on my home page.

Great box, the grain on the lid is amazing, looks like a butterfly.
