Beautiful House, Beautiful Entryway, Ugly doorbell chime cover

It started with my house.  We had a pretty walkway.  Beautiful doorway.  Lovely foyer with nice appointments and fresh paint.  And a dog-ugly, sun faded, cheap-o, plastic box covering the doorbell chimes.
This had to be fixed.  My bride loves roses, so I made this box to replace that plastic eye sore.

I got much better after this, but it was a nice improvement.  Rose is made of basswood.  Each pedal is carved separately, then glued back together.  The surround is made of maple, and I cut out some vines to allow the sound to escape.
