Well, I finally finished a couple projects. This was a small box for my Granddaughter Ellie. She wanted a small box that she could keep her hair bands, etc in. She thinks it is great. Isn’t it fun being Grandpa!

I is made with Walnut and Cherry. My first attempt at through dove tails with the incra jig. It was a little more difficult than I thought it would be but turned out OK.

This box making thing can get addictive.

It is great being Grandpa, and to make things for the kids is such a great feeling, they really love it, they know it’s special.

I like everything about this box: the choice of wood, the ‘personalized’ handle, the ‘suspension’ and the dovetails. Great job and I’m sure Ellie is real happy with granddad!
