After putting up with my addiction to wood, I decided that I wanted to make an anniversary gift for my wife of 17 years. I wanted it to be surprise, so I had her help me make it, under the premise that it was for my daughter. She helped me decide on the veneer choice, Makore. I spent a few days putzing around, glueing, clamping, polying, etc. On the 14th, I presented it to her, with a stainless steel dog tag and chain, inscribed was “I Love You Forever”. Since she is still in the Navy, I thought it was more appropriate to give her the dog tag, than just another ring or necklace. (She has so many) I also searched as much as possible, thinking that this TINY Box might just be the smallest one posted so far. If not, oh well. It about 1/2” tall by 2”x 2”. I took a pic of it resting on the Bradford’s Box for scale with a dime resting against it. In the last picture you’ll see the only way of clamping it was to use the biggest wood clamp I could find, I thought it was funny, I hope you do too.
