I was going through my pics and found this one. I made this last summer for a girl who was in our youth group. My wife and I lead a small group with the youth and this girl was in it. I’ve met very few people in my life, including adult, who have her faith and convictions. She and her family were moving and my wife wanted something special for her. So I made a small prayer box. The idea was whenever she needed support or had something troubling her, she could write it down and place it in the box and know that there was always someone praying for her.
It’s bubinga, sanded extremely smooth. I finished it with my typical tung oil, boiled linseed oil, and poly blend that I mix myself. It’s not the best pics in the world, sorry wasn’t planning on joining LJ’ back then. The inside is flocked in a maroon color, which blended very good with the reds in the bubinga. It’s a small box and the top come off, no hinges. Dovetailed jointery. There is another piece of bubinga that is fitted to the inside dimensions of the box, just to keep the lid in place.
