This latest box I made with Maple sides and Cedar top and bottom, with a Cedar lining. The trouble is, smaller and smaller scraps are starting to look appropriate for box making…This one’s not even 4” long!! About half way through this project I started laughing at myself, wondering what exactly I thought I was doing making something so tiny! I don’t think it would hold a large egg! To make matters worse, I’ve already lined up wood for the next two boxes, both of which will also be dimensionally challenged. Ah well….
The third picture is of my older Brother Steve and I Christmas morning 1961. Note the tool kit I had just received from Santa already spread at my feet. I was three and already an aspiring Lumberjock! I included the picture as a way to be able to wish all of you a very heartfelt Merry, Safe, and Peaceful Christmas and all the best wishes for a Happy and Prosperous New Year!! Michael C.
