When someone in our family gets married my wife asks me to make the box to hold the cards at the reception. After the reception the bride and groom can use the box to hold wedding albums or other wedding memorabilia. I try to come up with a unique design for each one.

This box is Birdseye maple and blood wood. The front, back and bottom have through tenons that are pinned to help hold the sides in place. Actually they are more decorative than functional. The box is about 16 inches long and 10 inches high. The top has a slot for the cards. I always scroll the names and date and apply that to the from or top of the box. The Birdseye maple for this project had some incredible figure.

Man great box, the thru tennons and the round side make this look great. The wood choice is great as well.

Ohhh, and the lettering looks good but thats a givenwith your scroll saw skills.

I got a pattern from you about 2 yrs ago for football jerseys, you had posted thanks for that.

Wow, super nice box Steve.
I made one a while back, but yours tops mine easily.
I bet Brandon & Sarah loved it!

This is a wonderful idea for a wedding gift, as well as a beautiful keepsake for the couple. I agree with the above, it is very beautifully made and I love the way it is joined together. I am sure they will treasure it always.
