Great work. Always a tough build.

One of the toughest builds to do. I think it is an honor and the most gratifying way a wood worker can show a loved one or friend. Great job.

Another great piece of work Grizz. I like the natural look of the woods.

To echo Mike’s comment, this has a nice “down home” aura about it. It’s a wonderful tribute to your friend.

It’s a beautiful way to honor your friend, Bob. I am sure his wife and his family are deeply touched by your efforts. It came out just beautiful.

Very nice grizz and my condolence to the lost friend, Mine that I had just posted here on LJ’s, the family picked it up Friday evening they loved it! they mentioned it was what they were looking for as their search on line and mortuary they just couldn’t find the right one, there’s nothing that can beat having one custom made.

Very nice work on a difficult task.
The top is especially nice. I see either a setting or rising sun. Those strips on the lid look like quarter sawn sycamore to me.
