Gift I made for a Sgt of mine. He was leaving the Marine Corps and since we are “Ordies” it was fitting to give home a warhead box. I copied the dimensions and used maple and walnut for the box, and threw in some cedar for the tray.

I hope he liked his going away gift-it turned out great. I like the look o the knot on the lid. Was that aromatic cedar?

Thanks or sharing.

Fantastic, great gift. From one Ordnance soldier to another thank him for his service!

really like the top. So often people overlook or cut away any knots as ‘defects’ when it really makes the piece stand out.

Nice work. Great gift
