Hello all, I thought I’d share this set with you. The box is maka with curly soft maple, and the carved leaf motif is copied from the cover of the album inside the box. The “D” stands for Dean, the Groom’s last name.
Funny story behind this one….the Bride hired me to make the gift as a wedding gift for her groom. Through working with her on design, etc…I learned that the groom was, in fact, one of my childhood friends who I hadn’t spoken to in 25 years! I kept this little tidbit of info to myself, and giftwrapped the box when it was done so the bride couldn’t peak. I told her the invoice was placed discretely inside the album, and to not worry about payment until they returned from the honeymoon. Well, there was an invoice…..marked $0.00 balance due, and a picture of the groom and I together at the age of 6 :). It must have surely suprised them, because I got a thank you call at midnight on the wedding night! I mean, surely there must have been something better they could be doing their first night as a married couple than calling me ;-) Anyway, I was touched.
Thanks for looking!
