This past year My family lost one of the Greatest People we have ever known, Before my stepmother passed away in October, She had during the year bought the grand kids presents, for my daughter she had bought her this small teddy bear angel figurine. I decided I wanted to make a small display box to help keep it protected. So far this has been the most difficult projects to build, building the box is simple don’t get me wrong, but every time i start working on it I get choked up and teary eyed, knowing this is the last gift My daughter will ever receive from her Grandmother. Sometimes the simplest project can turn into the most difficult project. R.I.P. Bertha Maxwell

Nice display box, Ken. Sorry for your loss. It sounds as though she will live on in loving hearts and memories.
God bless you all.

Sorry for your loss Ken, and I feel for you. last year I lost a friend of many years. I built an urn for his ashes … Though task indeed.
Now on a lighter side … 20 years ago I built a display box for my granddaughters porcelain doll, as my wood skills improved over the years, I remade the box… 5 times … Now it’s a box with inlays, edge banding, and a string inlay name.
I like your display box, clean and simple.
