This wedding gift is made of all mesquite with the bottom completely finished with tung oil. Lid left unfinished as part of the message. Inside the box will be tung oil for the the couple to finish. Box completed represents their foundation on which they were raised. The unfinished top with live edge represents the marriage relationship that they are to complete together. The tung oil represents the love and care that they are use to get into every part of their relationship. Unfinished it may look like flaws, but as they apply love and caring (tung oil) they will see one another and marriage as beautiful and not flawed.

I hope the box and object lesson are well received.

2nd box in the last photo was just because two boxes can be competed in about the same amount of time as one. Maybe it will be a gift for pastor appreciation.

This box is beautiful and very unusual.
