This may look like an unusual present for celebrating a silver wedding, however I wanted to give a gift that would be used everyday and would be a useful item. The idea came from a book of Chip Carving techniques produced by Dennis Moor
The box is made from Lime with corner rebate joints at the corners, the lid is glued on and routered to provide a softer profile on the edges.
The design was drawn on and then chip carved. The long sides have the two year dates on them, with the ends having the first initial of the names of the happy couple. The finish is 5 coats of spray on polyurethane satin varnish.
