Recently I received some pieces of an antique cherry bed. Unfortunately the bed was irrepairably damaged and someone had taken a circular saw to it to break it down. The pieces I got were hardly salvageable. I did get some usable wood from it. I used it to make these boxes. I added some Maple where required.
While the boxes in themselves are small and hardly spectacular they carry immense significance for me because of the source of the wood. Suffice to say it marked the end (and by definition the beginning) of a sad chapter in my life. With the exception of one of the smaller boxes which was given to the bed’s owner the rest will stay with me as reminders. I’m not inclined to discuss it in any way but would like to say that if you think that someone is being abused by their spouse, please do something. Do not stand idly by. You may save a life!
They are finished with Danish Oil and laquer.
