Second “Loving Hands Memory Box” for Arlin. This one fought me every step of the way! Walnut with maple splines. 16×9x6”, finished with wiped on Spar/MS. The frame around the top was nesessary to hide problem. My miter sled had warped (I didn’t think BB ply was supposed to warp) after all the recent rain and this was the start of my problems with this box. It turned out OK but I’m glad to be done with it! Hope this helps some grieving family in some small way

chrisstef, search “Arlin Eastman”, a LJ member. If this doesn’t work, send me a pm. I think this is a very worthwhile cause.

Despite the problems it turned out great. Apparently you won the fight. Well Done!

Good looking box, Doc as usual; also a great cause!

I think this is a cause that a lot of us could get behind. Having lost a child I know what these parents are facing for the rest of their lives and anything I can do to help,I will. I wish this cause weren’t limited to parents who have lost infants and could benefit others who have lost older children. A good friend just lost his 18 yr old son to drugs last week. F…”ing drugs!!!!!
