Memory Boxes

These boxes were made as gifts for the women in my family for christmas. They are made of many different types of wood, bandsawn together to create a landscape scene, wild sky, and a butterfly. They were made by creating one big scene "sheet" of wood and cutting each side out. Each side was cut from its respective direction to the top rectangle. Hinges are mortised in, there is a clasp in front and the bottoms are solid walnut. Some of the woods include walnut, maple, leopardwood, coyote, lyptus, mahogany, green poplar, and purple heart. Clamping was quite the event! I had blocks and stops screwed down to the bench with clamps in all directions!

Dimensions: ~12"x15"x4.25"

    She said, amid tears, that it was the nicest thing anyone had ever given her. Worth every cent.
