One has walnut ends and hi-lights and the other has Spanish cedar. These boxes were made from Scrap.

Beautiful boxes. I assume that your sons are older than the child in your picture. If not you will have to start by putting baby bottles in there. LOL

Very nice. I wish I had some scrap like that. The curly maple is gorgeous.

The child in the picture is me at 6 mo’s. I am starting over with my second childhood. Those boys are now 42. So I am trying to get them to adopt me. I just hope they will pay my lumber bills.

I had that curly maple board for a long time. Not really scrap, but the walnut and Spanish cedar was scrap. The dowel pins are 1/4 inch brass.

If each son has a son buy a bottle of port when they are born and put it in the box and then open when they turn 21. Be quite a ceremony!
