This was a gift I made for my cousin for Christmas this year. Her and her husband have 3 boys, but were unfortunate to have had a miscarriage last year as well. I wanted to celebrate their sons in some way but yet remember the little angel that they lost.

The box is made of solid cherry, with walnut cornerpost dovetails (thank you incra). The feet are walnut as is the lid. This was my first attempt at splined miters, and I think the cherry splines give it a nice accent, as well as the inner frame being cherry. The “baby angel” plaque on the inside is a piece of reclaimed yellow pine out of my grandparent’s old home. I did an image transfer on it using a laser printer and heat.
