I am new to lumberjocks, but thought my first post should be a box I made for my father-in-law a while back. The box was created after viewing Andy’s tutorial here. (Thanks Andy)! My father-in-law and I were both Marines, and his dedication to family was my reason for creating this gift, and the name for piece. The box is made of wenge, with a tiger maple medallion, and holly splines. the handle is holly, and inspired by enlisted stripes. Although I made this piece a while back, it is still one of my favorites. The box was designed to hold envelopes and a matching pen.
