Well here it is my first finished box, it went to my mother because she needed a special place to store all of her keepsakes from her dad who recently passed. I know I have a long way to go but it’s a start at least and enough fun for me to have completely caught the wood working bug! It was made using western cedar and cherry. The cherry came from my parents homestead and was cut and milled down to rough cut by my father. The cedar was some that I had laying around after another project that I scrapped so I figured I could reuse the wood for this box. I learned one very important thing from this project and that is hinges are a pain in the butt to use! I had tons of fun and can already see ways to make the next box better than the last. The best part is that I have about two truck fulls of cherry and aromatic cedar that my father had cut and dried, but never used to practice on before I get into having to buy wood for later projects.
