This is for a customer who is giving it to her boyfriend as a gift. His favorite wood is cedar and redwood. In order to get a nice contrast, we used blood wood in place of redwood. Dovetail joinery and the wood burning was the request of the customer. The dimensions are 9 inches by 6 inches by 5 inches tall.
After 10 years the co-founder of the school where I am employed is retiring. We wish her luck and know that she will be as successful in retirement as she has been in education. This box was made as part of a group retirement gift. Cherry and Walnut were used in its construction with dovetail joinery. The woodburning personalizes this well.
