Here at Roof Top Wood Work I’ve been busy preparing for Christmas. My sister-in-law lives in the NYC area, and they have a small child about the same age as my daughter. The cousins are fun to see together.

My wife found out that on Shutterfly you can get a “Memory” style game with pictures you’ve taken. So we found pictures of all the extended family on both sides and ordered it up. They came in a pretty unattractive set of cardboard boxes, so I made a storage box for the game. Here is the final result. Took me about a week of working on it mostly in the evenings and at night after my kids go to bed.

The sides of the bottom and top are box jointed (aka finger jointed). The piece is solid cherry milled to about 1/4 inch thickness throughout. I actually made two tops and two bottoms as we have a set of them for our kids as well. Enjoy the pics!

Happy to answer questions or field criticism.

I really do like this box. It makes a wonderful game storage box and is beautifully done.
