This past summer, I built a pair of jelly cabinets for a friend to give to his two adult daughters. The connection to my friend’s late mother is described here:

The cabinets have been in storage until today. I just received a wonderful email from my friend describing this “tearfully happy day” along with some photos of the family with the cabinets. This is one of the best parts of this already amazing Christmas Day.

I told my wife that with this project I feel like I may have “peaked” in my woodworking hobby. She disagrees. I hope that she is right.

Merry Christmas!

A very nice pair of builds and story to go with it. A belated Merry Christmas wish to you and yours. Have a safe holiday season.

One of those things worth more than money.
