Default Sheila Landry "O Night Divine" Christmas box

I made this for my daughter for Christmas and gave it to her on my trip. I wanted to be there when she opened it instead of mailing with the rest of the items. It is all cherry wood and I just love the pattern of the wood and color. The lid had a lot of pink in it. This is air dried Cherry that my husband help mill last year at the sawmill he volunteers at. I used a very thin piece of cherry and stained one side walnut to place under the top cutouts. The other side remained natural and you couldn't even tell it was backed. Finished with mineral oil/mineral spirits dip. I really need to learn to take better pictures. The last pic looks like there fuzzies on the one piece but it is actually the shadow of the piece behind it.

Beautiful job , every bodies correct ,I was astounded when ,I made boxes like that how much material it takes ,and the flawless exacting requirements all the pieces require thickness ,grain ,color ,ended up cutting twice as much wood as I had planned ,to get clear pieces ,I needed , There is more to a project like that then people think ! Excellent job.
