This is a keep sake box for my 8 year old granddaughter! Its made of 3/4 shelving board. I rabbited 2 sides to receive the 2 ends, I glued and pin nailed it together, I have trouble keeping things square, even though I cut the pieces square, but moving on, I then take tracing paper and drew the pattern’s onto the wood after all the sandind is done, and then tried my luck at wood burning, she loved it

I’m sure she loved it. That is nice. To me wood burning is tough. Some times just right. Other times to light or to heavy on burn in. You got it even.
