I have been married to the same wonderful woman for 31 years now and I wouldn’t change a day of the entire experience. Last year was our 30th and yellow roses were our signature flower at our wedding because they are my wife’s favorite flower.

So, last year when I saw this pattern by Robert Anderson, I knew I just had to make it for my wife. The wood is yellow heart. I enhanced the color just a bit on the box with some yellow stain to get the color just right.

I haven’t posted any projects for a while so I thought I would share. I hope you like it.

Beautiful piece of art work there. I’m sure she will cherish it for another 31 years.
