Last year a friend of mine had a mis-carriage. This year she gave birth to a son who had no kidneys and no bladder, after 30+ hours of labor. This is my first bandsaw box but it seemed like the best thing to memorialize her son with. As you can see there are two main drawers, and one hidden drawer. Another friend knitted some very small booties and another pair that are even smaller. The quarter is there for scale. In the top drawer are the larger booties (they will barely fit my finger) and in the hidden drawer are the smaller ones. (they won’t even fit my pinky) I had another friend engrave the lettering, but the hands I did with a wood burner freehand. The woods are cherry first, then poplar, alder and a cocobolo back, handles and one of the drawer fronts. The finish is just some tung oil. Very simple and keeping the wood look. I know it isn’t perfect, like I said its my first bandsaw box, but I learned a lot and is something that has a lot of meaning. Constructive criticism welcomed. Thanks.
