    That too is freaking awesome. I think I have only two more pieces like that that are book-matched. I probably will never find any like that again.

    And Beamer, I will try to get down there sometime. Taking time off work is expensive in more ways than one as I am the only one who really knows my job.

    It's spectacular! That lid is to die for.

    Great job. Boxes are the one thing I never seem to get right! All of them are exceptional!

    Love that Koa. I think you used it perfectly. Excellent box as usual.
