Default Special Birthday present

Hi everyone, I made this jewelry/trinket box for my wifes birthday, to go along with the purchased things. Ann Marie turned 65 on Easter Sunday and was so happy with the gift I made her, she wasn't even aware of the other gifts. The box body is made from Birds Eye Maple and the handles and legs are Spanish Cedar. I used a 1/4 inch brass rod between the two handles, and the legs are off set from the box by 5/8 brass dowels. I hope this works. Thanks for looking.

I love your design. Very art deco and excellently crafted.

Rick I'm actually having a hard time taking my eyes off it . Did you see this design before or conjure this up yourself ?
If it's your idea you've definitely got a superior vision than most
