I built this box for my daughter as a college graduation gift. We lost her mother to cancer almost seven years ago and I gave her our wedding rings with a nice white gold necklace. I thought it would be nice to make a box for it also. She seemed very touched and it was very meaningful

Kevin; What a nice box. The thick walls exude an aire of security for the special contents held. I will have to try that sometime. Excellent story, thanks for sharing.

Well done. And thanks both for the post and the story behind it.
