17th Century Style Carved Oak Box

I started this box some time ago. The oak came from a tree that was take down on the site of the museum that I used to volunteer at. It was all riven and worked into the box sides while it was still green. After it had dried a bit, the joinery was cut and the front panel was carved.  I assembled the box sides during a volunteer day at the museum and then it got put aside. I finally got around to finishing the box over the weekend. At this point, all it needs is a bit of final scraping in a couple spots and a good coat or three of oil. Then it will be listed for sale.
