My two good friends were getting married and both work at The University of Michigan Hospital as Trauma/ Burn Nurses.
They came to me with an idea of making a gift box for cards for their wedding gift table.
At my wedding my wife and I made a firehouse/school house box as we are both Firefighter and Teacher.
They wanted a replica, or close to it, of the Hospital as it is a big thing in their life. Mostly made of 1/4”, 1/2”, and 3/4” MDF, Glued together and painted. The roof has HO scale model railroad ballast glued on.
Though, it is not to scale or even have the correct amount of sections, it still replicates it fairly well.
While on display, many people asked what “company” made this for them. That is always a compliment when an average woodworker can pass something off as store bought or company shipped.
It generated some business after that, but nothing enough to make a business out of it.
