Christmas boxes I made for the grandkids. The little steamer trunks are made of pine and real leather belts around them. I kept losing track of how many grandkids I have and had to go back into the shop to make a couple more boxes. But they loved them and that was a thrill for me.
The desk os out of pine too, and to save time I bought the legs and secured the apron with Kreg screws. The top I glued up a couple of stair treads to make it. They looked pretty good after sanding. She was pleased so it was a good Christmas for me.

You have been a busy grandad. Christmas was good for all. Now you can get started on next Christmas…remember, you’ll have to do your best to beat this years gifts. The only downside to making really cool gifts. Thanks for sharing with us.
