This box was made from extra material, Cherry, (left over from the 2nd tray) and scraps (Walnut) from the scrap bin. It measures approximately 6” wide, 4” deep, and 4” high. That is supposed to be an “Apple Pie” I drew and woodburned into the insert. The finish is several coats of shellac sprayed on. The insert grain runs opposite of the grain in the rest of the top. I made it for Judy’s grand-daughter, Katie, for Christmas. We are scanning recipies from Judy and Judy’s mother to be included in the box.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice. Wood burning the pie on top is a nice touch. The recipes make it extra special :)

All around nice project, especially the insert and your wood burning of an apple pie.

Thanks for the comments fella’s. I appreaciate all the input, especially ones that offer suggestions to make it “better” or “different” or something I might not have thought of.

Sweet and lovely box! Very well made, like the splines and the wood choice. The apple pie is a nice touch. I’m sure Katie loves it. Great job!
