For my Dad who will be 91 later this month.

Not much I can think of that he needs or would want, but I think every one needs a place to stash a few letters, photos and such.

I put a lot of work into this one. The sides are of ash from the same tree as my guitar build and the top and bottom panels are of maple saved from the fire wood pile, re sawn, and book matched. I took a lot of video of things I did during the build and posted them on my You Tube channel. There are probably a couple more to go. The finish is BLO and bees wax. Today I gave it the final rub out and then put a coat of paste wax on it. It feels great.
