This box was made as a wedding gift for my brother and now stands handsomely in their living room as a place to put bibles and other reading material. It was made from claro walnut with a cedar of Lebanon bottom. The joinery, as is typical for the Arts & Crafts style, is exposed throughout. The design and lettering were all hand carved using a chip carving knife. Both the box and stand are finished with two coats of hand rubbed Danish Watco Oil.
