OK so technically this is not one of my projects. My son Teddy created this Keepsake box, but I provided the technical advice and ended up cutting the diagonals and the inlay work for the top. It is interesting working with my son who does not have the patience that I have, only because of age. I was like him when I was 19. Not sure I could of done decent woodworking at that age because of that.
The box is 2.25”w x 7”l x 2” d. Its made with walnut and maple. The inside was finished with 1 coat of shellac and the outside is 5 coats of tung oil. It warms my heart to know that many of the tools I inherited from my Dad will have a home when I am done with them.
