I was recently commissioned to build this double hat box as a retirement gift from a husband to his wife. Both are Operations Specialist. The husband has been retired for about 2 years and his wife is now retiring. He thought this would be a nice gift for the occasion. This was a fun project.

Nice job—unique and looks like a fun project. Your CNC work is always top notch and really distinguishes your work.
