These are a pair of boxes I was asked to make for a co worker whose Daughter had recently joined the Air Force. She has began to receive her first challenge coins and wanted a safe place to keep them. The co worker requested names on the lid and the Air Force logo. The names were easy, the logo was a little tricky. I made a guide for my dremel with a router attachment for all the straight lines. All carving was done with the dremel router, I used rabbets for the build forming a full box then cutting off the lid. Made from 1/2 inch poplar and stained with red oak stain, 3 coats of gloss polyurethane. Box and tray lined with blue felt. Inside coated with danish oil. I have really come to like using this.
Actually, I had to make three boxes to get two nice ones. More about that on my next project post. A good story.
