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.

What a great idea and something she will treasure. You’re a good dad.

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

What a great dad-thing to think of! I am sure she will be thanking you for this box over many years.

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.
