This is the first box I’ve made in weeks and is made for a wonderful granddaughter out in San Antonio whom I see much too seldom. She’s graduating from high school this year and I’m so very proud of her. It’s made from Tulip Poplar and is hopefully made small enough to fit in a dorm room. I know it’s nowhere big enough to hold the love I have for her.

I certainly know how you feel. Writing a little something on the bottom about how you feel about her will make the little treasure a lifelong keepsake. That advice came to me from another great LJ named Mark Decou who was right on the money, with a hope chest I made for my daughter. Beautiful bandsaw box.

Mike, great idea and will remember it, but the box was too small to write very much on. Hope the accompanying letter expressed my love. Thanks for the compliments.

good one buddy… like the flow of the grain and how it goes with the shape of the box. I’m sure she will love it

She’s going to love this! The wood is just beautiful and it has a pleasing shape. She’ll love telling her friends in the dorm that her grandpa made this for her!!
