Lance emailed me some pictures of his box, and it exactly what these books should have been sold with. I am having him make two boxes to replace the crappy cardboard boxes I got for my girls. His cedar box will make this the set I was looking for.
The box looks awesome! It complements the books perfectly. In fact, this is the type of box they should have come in. I love that that Lance is hand crafting and offering to customize each box to whatever you desire. It's a bit pricey, but considering the work that goes into each creation, I believe it's worth the price.
