Christmas gift for my wife using leftover cedar from another project. It took me two days to create, but it was time well spent. I started out with two blocks of wood that were 10×10x2 inches and then using a table saw and planer I turned them into 4×8x1/4 inch pieces, making sure to only use the red part of the cedar, after which I had to decide how to put it all together, as you can see I decided on how. I had first planed putting felt in the bottom, but my grandmother took one look at the box and told me the best thing to do would be to line it with black velvet, like always she was right, I can’t believe I ever thought of using anything else. The finished dimensions are 4×4x8 inches and I finished it with Danish oil.
