I just wanted to show off the boxes that were made and I only did 2 of them and Andy did 3 and another guy Joe did another 2 of them Here are the pictures. Also ND2ELK (Tom Stockbridge) sent me 2 boxes I have not yet put together. He gave me all the drawing how to do both. The lower one on the bottom Left is made from a guy Ron From The patriot woodworker in which he sent me 2 of them. The one is compleatly done as you see and the other is in pieces for a templete for me to use.
I have a website now http://www.lovinghandsmemoryboxs.com/index.html to get the work out we need more woodworkers.

Thank you for looking and to Dennis for suggesting to put this here.

All the Best

All the credit go to the other guys and yes they make wonderful boxes

Gene
No I do not sell any of them, they are all given away. My new website is http://www.lovinghandsmemoryboxs.com/index.html

I contacted the National Share program and donate all the boxes to them, however, there have been a few close to me that I sent one to.

Do they need to be any specific size? I am in Mexico but would not mind shipping a box or two to you when I get some free time to make them. Please PM with address and specs for the boxes.

Here are the guidlines which are pretty open and any type of woodworker can do one.

Loving Hands Memory Boxes CLUB (LHMB)

Following are the guidelines for making and marking of the boxes
General Guidelines

1. Boxes can be made from any type of hardwood or softwood and most of the exotics, careful of woods with lots of oils that cause rashes by touching. (Mostly rosewoods unless used in inlays or such.
2. Boxes can have engravings, inlay, carvings, scroll saw and other type of Art Work, however, everything must be in taste i.e. it can be with woodland animals, birds, plants, fish, (not sharks or killer whales), and not bleeding hearts, or anything that can be connected with the child dying.

SIZE OF BOXES

a. STILLBORN- Inside measurements, 2 1/2” to 5” tall. Must be big enough for sonograms and some outfits or shoes or anything else infant size. The boxes can be square, round, octagon, or any other size with hinges (metal or wood) rabbeted, or suction fit. They can be made from Bandsaw boxes, Scroll saw boxes Turned Boxes, Table saw boxes, Router Boxes ie a box can be made from powered or non powered tool/s

b. S.I.D.S.- Inside measurements, 5” to 6” tall This would be big enough for a large photo’s, a toy, clothes or anything else for ages up to 2 years old.

They can be made from Bandsaw boxes, Scroll saw boxes Turned Boxes, Table saw boxes, Router Boxes ie a box can be made from powered or non powered tool/s

Thank you sir. It is my passion in life to serve these couples that are hurting, since I can not serve in the military anylonger.
