This box was made with wood from my father’s workshop. He was quite the woodworker, and try as he might, he couldn’t impart this love to me. When he died in 1995 his shop sat for years. Finally, I brought the tools to my barn and began to play with them and found that I really liked piddling around with them. A few months ago I found a stash of wood that he had. I thought it might be neat to build a box for my daughter out of wood from the grandfather she never met. This was my first attempt at doing an inlay. If you notice, I don’t give you a close up look at it. I’m sure that it will end up with a few dings since she is only 5, but oh well.
