I needed a gift so I decided to make a box I haven’t made for awhile. I made several of these about a year ago and they turned out to be one of my best sellers. The only thing is I just could not leave it alone, had to upgrade. The lining inside on the sides can be removed and photos placed in the openings on the sides and front and back. Each one has a plexiglass piece inserted to protect the pictures, recesses in. I used a cove bit around the fronts of the opening to give a bigger appearance. The slats on the top was my first attempt at boiling wood to make it flexible. Had a time getting the sap out of the pot before my wife found out! The tray is 1/2 inch poplar and I used miters on the corners. Stained with red oak and the inside cherry, gloss polyurethane. Lined with blue felt. A rather large box, 15X11.5. I think it made a nice up grade and now have orders for five more! Thanks for looking.
