« Part 3: The Final Look Before It Flies Part 4 of MEGAN'S BOX - Made for a purpose series no next part

Let us see and look into the words and feelings of our fellow LJ who just received Megan’s box.

It is my honor to say that LJ Rand should be known by everyone how he feels about the box that he received from me. Most of us just look into the photos of our projects, make comments, appreciate, share ideas and techniques but what about if you yourself manage to have a hand on the real thing?

I had once had visited Philly actually set foot on his shop and hold on to his planes. Its a different feeling than looking into the picture and trying to imagine things. Additionally, Benji is a very popular LJ whose art on design for a chair, tables and other designs are really outstanding where almost all LJ are aiming to sit on, look at it and touch it.. I had even sit on it and actually touched the real one. WHAT A FEELING! (Benji and Phil, I am very thankful for the chance I met you)

WHAT ABOUT IF YOU RECEIVED AN OTHERS LJ’S WORK… HOW DOES IT FEELS? HAVE YOU HAD AN EXPERIENCE AS RAND HAVE? Allow me Rand to quote your words which is continuously echoing in my heart and mind how I made you and family happy….

The selection of wood is amazing. The colors complement each other so nicely.And the dovetails are so tight and the wood is so thin. Man, I have never seen dovetails in wood this thin. Is your next box to be made out of newspaper? lol you are way above my league in the handmade dovetail department. The wood for the lid is very unique in that it is two different colors, one on the outside and another on the inside. Amazing that wood can change so much while it is growing. This is truly a one of a kind box.

When I think back to our first PM’s and me inquiring about the plans for Janna’s box and how it has all came to this wonderful gift for my grand daughter Megan. And all this at a most difficult time in her life. Your family is truly blessed to have you in their lives as we too feel blessed for having our new friend in our lives. You have touched our hearts very deeply. The only thing nicer than the box is you and your loving, giving heart. People like you are very few and far between. All our love to you and your family. Rand, Maddie, Megan and Jen.
