My first post and first project since retirement. This is a cardbox for my daughter’s wedding next weekend. The top three drawers are false fronts and the top is hinged. After the wedding, the drawers will be added behind the fronts and the top will be fastened for a jewelry box.
What makes this most special is the cherry. My wife’s grandfather operated a sawmill in the 40’s and 50’s and this 2×10 was still sitting in what’s left of the mill. He passed away when my wife was young and I never met him. Hopefully it will be special in lots of ways.
Want to say thanks to all the lumberjocks. I’ve read a lot of posts for a while and your insight and expertise have been tremendously beneficial.
Hopefully, the first project of many.
