I made this walnut and maple keepsake box because my daughter needed a wedding gift for a friend. I work almost entirely with hand tools ( I sometimes use a drill press but didn’t for this project). I don’t think I can embed it here but for any who want to see how it was made, there’s a video that goes with it here: https://youtu.be/044YOkY2dqA

great looking box! I always wonder if the gifts we make for one of our family, to give to others, are truly appreciated for the work and love that goes into them, by those who receive them.

It’s weird but when I travel to see my family, I think deep down, I’m just asvexcited to see all the things I’ve made for them as I am to see my family.

Thanks, Scott, Charles and AJ! Scott, I assume it will end up in a closet somewhere most of the time but it’s ok. For me, the joy is mostly in the creation not so much the end product.
