Something Just for Me
Then along came a particular cigar box. Unvarnished, unrouted, unpretentious. A perfect rectangle with a slide top - no hinges or hardware to mar its lines. I have been collecting vintage wooden cigar boxes to store supplies in, but they are almost exclusively beveled or routed, and mostly varnished and debossed with the maker's logo. So this beauty was unusual.
The best part? It came together exactly like I imagined! That almost never happens. Things tend to evolve during the assembly process.
Now I can sit and look at this sweet little box every day and know it's just for my enjoyment. Now I just have to decide what to put in it!
