This is a proposal to my now fiance Jen. She’s a HUGE Zelda fan and i took advantage of that. She has this exact symbol tattooed on her leg.
It started off with wanting to think outside the box from the regular just down on 1 knee and propose.
I thought this up. The base is HDPE plastic multi color brown/tan. At work we have a 3 axis thermwood CNC router, i had a co-worker route it out for me. I then made a frame of curly maple to encase it.
The box itself was a great learning experience. First time doing non 45 degree joints, ended at 30 degrees for a sym. box. Curly maple box, walnut splines and top.
The top was very fun to do, had to do 2 to get it right since im a perfectionist! :]
The chip you see in the top is for a greeting card. I asked her, her favorite love song and loaded it onto it.
