This is the first box that I made, which I gave to my wife for our anniversary.

I used 1/4” pine. It took a few tries to get it right.

It is full of something you can never replace…. Love!

I look back on some of the stuff I made in the past and have a mixture of pride and embarrassment. Then I think about what those items meant at the time and poof… all the embarrassment is gone!

Keep up the great work!
