I volunteer in a woodworking shop within a non profit agency in Rochester, NY which supports clients afflicted with cerebral palsy. We build wheelchair assistive devices and other things to help the CF patients.
One of the counselors there approached me a few weeks ago with a request to build a memory box for a recently departed member of her family. I made it from 1/2” red oak and box joined the corners using a table saw jig. I sprayed it with 3 coats of shellac and sealed it with spray polyurethane. I used what I thought was tasteful brass hinge, carrying and latching hardware to finish the box.
I’m happy to report the grieving lady was overjoyed with the result and I felt great about it as well.
