Jewelry box for 12-YO granddaughter. ('scuse the gut - didn't occur to me I was shooting at a mirror):

Makes me think of my Dad. I have many boxes he made. He made fitted long boxes for a few of my scoped rifles. I recently gave my Springfield custom rifle to my son, along with the fitted box his grandpa made for it. I hope it eventually goes to one of my grandsons...

That is BEYOND BEAUTIFUL !!
Wood working like that makes Norm Abram and The New Yankee Workshop look like amateur hour at a high school shop class.
And no, I will not try to match that with my limited woodworking skills.

Very nice. Now she's going to tell the boys she has to fill that thing up with bangles and baubles!

Very nice, she will love it!
That is gorgeous.
I can't imagine having the talent and skills to build that.
It will last her a lifetime.
She's going to love it! Great job!
Life is full of give and take. Give thanks and take nothing for granted!
Exceptional job! Mad skills there. She will have it for the rest of her life then pass it along.
