This is a pair of fairly plain boxes with lift-off lids that I made for a special purpose. They hold keepsakes left behind by my late parents. Mom’s box is veneered in cherry, Dad’s in figured maple. Both boxes are trimmed in walnut and lined with eastern red cedar veneer. The boxes measure 16”L x 12”W x 9”H.

The boxes are beautiful befitting the special purpose they were made for. Great job.
