The most difficult in several ways. To start it’s for my father’s remains, he passed away on Tuesday. Mom asked me to make a box for two reasons; boxes from the funeral home were hundreds of dollars, and dad was always proud of my woodworking so she thought it would be fitting. I only had a few days to make this box so it was a rush job and it shows. I have a new box joint jig but after a couple of blowouts I gave up and went with a dado. The stain went well then I spray lacquered but because I was pushing the limits, I ended up with a lot of sags. Fortunately its pretty dimly lit at funerals.
