The school year is coming to an end. My son will be moving on to middle school in fall. This past year has been trying for him. On a personal level. However, every once and a while you are fortunate in life to find a teacher who just go beyond what is expected of them. His teacher is one of these. He ended the year spectacularly. At graduation won several academic awards including the Presidential Gold Ribbon for maintaining a 4.0+ GPA over the last two years. He was even chosen to do the welcoming speech during thge ceremony. I am so proud of him. And a big part of his success was his teacher.
So when he asked me if I would make a box for her as a parting thank you gift I tried to do something special. Curly maple and walnut. Drop in lid. Finished with Danish oil and wax.
(I always do multiples when I make boxes.)
