My mom and dad made it 62. It’s quite an accomplishment.

What type of wood? Something spalted? Nicely done.

That is a great design and very well executed. That may be the longest marriage that I know of.

65 amazing!

Lol, When I first saw it, the proportions made me think it said “bs” There’s probably a joke in there some place.

Seriously tho, nice work on the box and congratulations for 65th anniversary.
