In addition to participating in the box swap I had an order for three bridesmaid boxes from a friend who is getting married. She originally wanted me to buy three at a craft store and finish them. I told her I think I could save her some money AND make a more personalized box if I made them myself. I made these three out of half inch poplar, assembled with rabbets, engraved the maids name on each and did a dogwood blossom with a dremel and a router attachment. All matching. Finished with red oak stain and gloss polyurethane, (three coats). Red felt lined. Between the swap and these I have really been “boxing” lately!
