I recently had a project for three brides maids boxes for a friend. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/106165. Apparently the maids and bride were happier then I thought. The Groom contacted me and wanted one for the bride. I asked what kind and he said, “Whatever you want to do”. I asked how big and got the same reply. Color? Same reply. Would you like some engraving? “What ever you think’ I trust you”. He really gave me a lot of leeway (and trust) so I thought I would try something new. I had some luck with a new box style so I expanded on this style. I added legs and a lift try, In addition to increasing the size. I used the same wood as the others and stain. I engraved the lid in the same style and same graphic to match. I am really happy with this style and hope with all this trust, the bride is happy too.
