Bill,

This is sure to be a family heirloom! Nice job on the carving as well! Is the lid hinged or does it just fit down into the box?

Happy New Year Mike! It has a pair of small brass hinges and a brass chain to hold it. Hope you’re warm in the Great White North – I hear Newberry is wonderful this time of year :-)

Hey Bill,

I didn’t see the MI behind the Rochester!

Nah… it is cold as crap up here this time of year. However we do have our TCSDR (Tahquamenon Country Sled Dog Race) this coming weekend and we do need snow for that. If the car starts, I may even get there this year!

Never heard of a Bible Box until recently so was kind of fascinated on how they work. May want to build one for our church (too cold to do any remodeling projects over there until spring)!

Give a shout if you get across the bridge sometime!

Mike
