Was asked to build a memorial box for a friend of mine who’s mom just past away.
Made from locally harvested and milled walnut. Took us about three days (after work) to get it done. Thought it was pretty nice considering it was my first time doing box joints.

Good looking project. Walnut is a great memorial wood.
I had to read through a lot of helps to find out that if you pick a picture and edit it (crop and resize) minutely, then save it, it STAYS in the right position when you up load it. I just posted a couple tha were not upside down.
