I built this “Prayer Box” for my Uncle Harold, who is a retired pastor and missionary. It’s a combination of curly maple and purple heart on the outside, with a cross of yellow heart on the inside. The corners are rounded through dovetails and designed to resemble fingers interlocked in prayer. Both crosses are raised (not merely glued on – took some time to perfect this) both inside and out. Wood hinges are purple heart. I enjoyed this project immensely.

Nice work. Will he write down prayers and keep them in it? kind of a neat idea.

TTF…that’s the general idea. Truth is, as a retired “Man of the Cloth”, he can use it for anything from kitchen recipes to storing laundry detergent.

This turned out beautifully and I’m sure that your uncle was well pleased.
