Oak benevolence box for a Preacher friend of mine, He asks to build an offering box for their Church, they have Oak pews so I constructed the Box from oak so the grain wraps around the box. The bow is from Red Cedar and white popular. This simple little 5-1/4” X 7” X 12” box has a lift off top and is a gift, I hope they enjoy it.

Very nicely done, great craftsmanship – especially the bow which adds a beautiful touch to this creation.

lumberjacques, A fellow LJ wood worker has an excellent post that may be clearer than I can do correctly; he also has a pattern there as well for details just go to Ribbon and Bow Box Techniques –
Good luck happy woodworking. If this fails to work for you send me a reply.
