I was waiting for this simple christmas present for my Mother to make it to its destination before adding it to my projects. It’s a simple, and my second band saw box. After the even simpler one not posted, I thought of making one for my Mother somewhat personalized. Her name is María Inés, and family and friends call her Marina or Marinés with the last one not to be confused with the US military group.

As is the case with my wood work (and to show my naivete and amateurishness I admit it), there are many flaws in this small project. The most glaring one, not that you can’t see it, is how I came in to the drawer. If you haven’t found out I’ll tell you, crazy glue don’t do endgrain.

The finish is a cocktail of BLO, thinner and glossy poly. It looks a lot better than my usual work but that’s because my wife who is much better than me at applying poly, would not let me let it out until I cleaned it some as my initial applications did need help.

I had picked up a board of ambrosia maple for the project after thinking of the concept. You can see the rest. As flawed as it is, it still is one of a kind, and She loved it!

Anything you make and give a mom is a treasure. I am sure she feels that way about this box too.

Great job and a thoughtful gift.
