I have a good friend of mine who is a Marine and i wanted to do something special for him for Xmas this year. I found this great letter opener but the box it came in was just not doing it for me so i decided to build a box
After a bit of research this is what i came up with. Simple pine wood that was taken down to 1/2 thickness.I added the groves to simulate the slates. Found some old hinges that seemed to fit the character of the box..
added handles ..I then burned the wood with a torch to give a bit of age. At this point it looked good but it needed something else ..enter a transfer tool found at a local hobby shop..
a laser printer ,and some creative word doc magic to get the wording mirrored and boom …completed..
I hope he likes it..
