My baby sister recently had her 2nd baby. So keeping with the tradition I started with his older sister I made him a Birth-day box. To keep those al importand mementos in. Welcome to the world Ryland.

Mahogany, walnut and maple. Approx 9”x12”x4”. Tung oil, poly and waxed.

(His sisters book is here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/69536 )

Thanks for looking.

Great job on both boxes and great tradition. Every child needs a special place to stash their special treasures. Thanks for posting.
