When they are old, and have grandkids of their own, they will pull out those boxes and tell the story of how their grandfather made them. Great gifts, Mike.

Wow, those are beautiful! I have been thinking about building some keepsake boxes for my grandchildren; your craftsmanship has inspired me! That said, I won't be able to do anything nearly as artful as your effort, you are in a league of your own!

Mike sells kits so novices can make these boxes. We had a workshop where a bunch of us made the flower box.

Love your work Mike. I am heading to Judy Gale Roberts for one of her 3 day INTARSIA classes. I hope to be able to do half as good as you someday.
