Small box for my daughter...

Hey everyone!

My 12 year old daughter passed her test achieving her green belt in taekwando. As part of her test she broke a pine board. When we got home I thought it might be nice to make her a little dovetailed box from the board she broke, and this is what I whipped up. Done 100% all by hand and finished with a bot of walnut stain just to give it a bit more character. Nothing super fancy, but I think she will like it!

Very nicely done and most thoughtful.

Nice box. Special gift. Your 12 year old daughter could probably my butt!

Good job Bob! I”m sure your daughter put a lot of work into achieving her green belt and I can see you put a lot of work into building this box by hand. There’s something special about hand-crafted works of art.
