My Parents just celebrated there 40th wedding anniversary. My sister had the idea to make postcards of one of there wedding pictures for friends and family to mail to them. I decide to make them a box to keep them in. The box is cherry, the base walnut, and the finish is BLO and paste wax. I am pretty happy with it but I need more practice at my dovetails.

Nice idea turned into a very nice gift. I don’t see anything wrong with those dovetails at all. We all all our own worst critics.
