For my daughter’s recent wedding she asked me to make a love letter anniversary box for the ceremony. This is what I came up with. The way it works is the bride and groom write love letters before the ceremony then during the ceremony they put the letters in the box, (I made pockets in the lid) along with a bottle of wine then they “nail” the box shut using tapered dowels in holes in the lid. On there wedding anniversary they pry the box open, drink the wine and read the letters. Then write new letters, put a new bottle in and seal it up for the next year.
Sanded the lid with 80 grit and left it rough to get the “rustic” look they wanted.
Made from walnut, finished with natural Danish oil.
