Default Wenge Memorial Box

Hi everyone,
I made this quite a while ago, but I thought maybe you'd like to see it.

It's a Memorial box made totally in Wenge (except for the base which is ply covered in felt)

The people bought a box via internet and it was the "Box from Hell". Mitres didn't meet, sides were not well finished and for this they paid over $200.00

So I was asked if I could make something a bit better. They wanted a glass pane in the lid to place a picture of the deceased in.

So, pics #1,#2 and #3 are the original box.
Pic #4, #5 and #6 are the Wenge box I created for them.

I don't have as many tools as most people here...but Gee I've got some pretty hardwoods!
