I made this box for my sons confirmation gift. It’s quarter-sawn makore, quarter-sawn sycamore and a little maple. Specifically the top underside is maple. I was afraid the sycamore wouldn’t display the scripture. My wife and I chose the scripture because he’s a young man and he’s growing up. We want him to know even when he’s away from us, his savior will always be there. The engraving was done on a friends cnc.
The bottom has been wrapped in leather with a false bottom so it’s a clean look underneath. The dovetails are not handcut, rather my Leigh dovetail machine.
I was out to make him something he’d cherish to mark the occasion.
