My 7 year old daughter Kathryn is a bit of a pack-rat. A while back she mentioned that I never make her anything, so I came up with this heart shaped box with a “key”. Its made from blood wood and yellow heart. Finished with 3 coats of tung oil and beal finishing system. I left it on the table for her to find tomorrow morning. I hope she likes it.
