This is a tribute to my Grandfather. He was 96.

He gave me $300 dollars two years ago when I bought my first house. Told me, “Buy something for your house.”

I used the money to buy a tablesaw on Craigslist. When I told him that’s what I bought it put a deep smile on his face. I owe him for getting me started down the road of woodworking. As I was shaping the wood, I thought about all the ways he helped shape me. It was helpful in the grieving process.

The box is Walnut with a Cherry top. The lid is fixed into place, and the ash will be deposited from the bottom which is screwed in.

Wonderful box, but an even better tribute. Was your grandfather a woodworker?

Very Nice box for your Granfather. Those are one of the toughest projects that a woodworker can make , I know the one I made was.

Have your say...
