At Christmas time we have many people we want to share our thanks, appreciation and love with. This year I made a bunch of hexagon boxes. They measure 5 1/2 inches in width and 3 inches high. I made the sides from 1/2 inch plywood. The top and bottom are odds and ends left from other projects, also one-half inch thick.

As veteran Lumberjocks are aware, most entries posted here are finished with a stain and topcoat and not paint. But at the holiday time of year, I opted for the red paint and silver snowflake for the festive look.

I lined each box with white tissue paper, and then filled each one with individually wrapped candies. Hopefully these boxes will please the recipients and make them smile and know of the friendship I feel for them.

Merry Christmas to fellow woodworkers at Lumbarjocks.

What a great idea and a nice way of thanking friends…and paint is a finish just not what is usually seen in here, but as you say it is Christmas and red and snowflakes are very much a Christmas theme…..thanks for sharing
