All made from the same board, with a shellac finish. Half-blind dovetails, gold plated hinges and a plaque with number series..Letter from customer..Hi Steve, the six boxes arrived all safely, and nicely! Thanks for the fine work of art! The sizes are just right and "cute" too! I will be gifting them to my parents today and to my brother and sister next month when I see them. The series of five boxes will definitely become something very special in my family. My father's walnut box also arrived impeccable and will be gifting to my father today. Do you have approximate finish date for my mother's walnut box?
