I wanted to build something special for the birth of my first granddaughter, so I chose a keepsake box.
I haven’t done much woodworking in many years, and I had a hard time of it at first. The first attempt went so wrong that I decided to start over and make a second box, but continue building the first box to test settings and techniques.
By the end of the project, I realized that the first box was actually not so bad, so I decided to give it to my mother so she would have something to connect her to her great-granddaughter.
The box is made of maple with cedar splines. The white on the top is dry-erase board, so it can be used to draw/write on.
Everyone said they loved the gifts. And this project has inspired me to get back into woodworking.
