This is the first box I build using the micro wave steam bending process and a new jig I build which has produced the best results so far .
I build this box in memory of my mother MARTHA which passed away during my early childhood and I wanted a special tribute and keepsake box to remind us and keep a little momento of her in this box .
This box is made from douglas fir and walnut and finished with wipe on poly .

Sorry your mom cannot see what a stunning piece. Maybe she can. Merry Christmas. Really like your creative extension of this style!

That’s some fine bending there Klaus.
You are really getting the hang of it.
I think I know a little of the emotion that went into this as I had a somewhat similar project about a year ago.
You did well.
