I made this box for my parents. The box is made from scrap plywood that I thought looked way too nice for the scrap bin. I added some Cherry strips around the edges to cover the plywood edge. The top is a cabinet panel-reject that I cut into a double frame for pictures. I also found the piece of walnut burl in the scrap bin- lucky day.
After I finished the box my boss (who is a walnut fanatic) said -where the heck did you get that burl? -Out of your scrap bin!
I couldn’t help but put the windows in as well, which represent A LOT of effort and small cuts and cuss-words. When I got to the end of them I was GLAD to make the frames out of wood and see the finished product. The space one was a project I did for my brother and the leaves were for my Dad.
