Covering a water shut off

 Karen threatened that if I did not make a cover for the water shut off then she would go to a cabinet shop and have someone make one. Well....I could not have that could I?  I do not know what her hurry was. It has only been 34 years since we bought this house. (in my defense, I have done MANY things to keep the house current). 
This is the opening. I made a simple frame of quarter sawn white oak.

The flowers are holly that have been sand shaded. The flower stem is cherry and the kanji (mizu=water) is walnut. The finish is 4 coats of shelac.
