I made this spalted maple and walnut dovetailed memory box as a wedding present for my husband. It contains all the letters of advice friends and family shared with us on our wedding day.

Anne, this is a beautiful box and nicely done. I went to your website and saw the pictures of your farm and all of the animals, and children. It looks like a place where there is a whole lot of peace, and happiness, and love. I don’t see how in the world you take care of all those kids and animals and still have time to do woodwork and work on cars, and all the other things you must do. God has really blessed you and your family. May you always be happy in your work.
