I made this box as a donation to a local golf course’s tournament for seniors. The box is poplar, with 1/4” box joints made on the tablesaw with a homemade jig. I found the outline of a putting golfer online and printed it on my printer to the proper size to fit the box lid. I use carbon paper to transfer the design to the box. The wavy outline was just done freehand The background is routered out, then I stained it green and the rest of the outside of the box stained as well and coated with a few coats of wipe-on poly.

Nice work Julie!

That’s a great lid, and nice job on the box too.

I know one or two people in my family that might eventually get something similar as a gift… thanks for the idea.
