It’s a mixed emotion letting go of something special from your collection. Last January 4, 2014, I attended a wedding of Gerard and Connie from Toronto, Canada who held their church wedding here in Manila that became a much memorable day. My wife Agnes had already given me time to make one box as a gift however, the box I made is not really as smooth surface after finishing… meaning not really worth giving. So, I told her to just select from our collection. She was looking until she picked up this….
This was already posted as project Trapezoid and Rectangle
It was one my successful projects being fitted with a wooden hinge and also made out of several species of wood that were keep in my storage bin (scrap). On the other hand, I am also happy to present it to the couples as they will cherish forever… Aside from the fact that I can still follow up the years to come with that box. Most of my boxes were gift to my relatives and they always tell me how good the boxes I gave and they ask for more.
Together with this gift, I also gave Connie’s parents (Nestor and Marilou) who is also resident of Toronto six pieces of coasters with a container cylinder and a trivet (hexagonal). They are also happy knowing that these are all made by my hands. Here are some of the photos.. (I forgot to take photo before we gave it.)
The cylindrical container on the right was the one that contained the coasters.
The trivet design looks like the lid cover of the cylindrical container.
The coasters looks exactly the above however they are separated as hexagon coasters. (Sorry, I was not able to take photo)
Thanks for reading. Just want to share to you the journey of a box. after 260 days ago the time I posted this as project.
Have a nice day!
