Just before my grandfather died I was able to write him a letter to try to capture some of what he had meant to me. This box is a non-verbal attempt to express some of the same thoughts for my grandmother. I will be adding a verbal attempt too, but this was the first step.
The wood is walnut from Kansas (sides), cherry from Alabama (lid), pine from Lowes (interior boxes) and ebony (drawer handle) from craigslist. I milled and dried the walnut and cherry. The finish is Formby’s tung oil finish topped by finishing wax.
I learned a few things along the way that I would do differently, and I would appreciate observations you all may have that would make the next one better.
