Project Information

I built this "Prayer Box" for my Uncle Harold, who is a retired pastor and missionary. It's a combination of curly maple and purple heart on the outside, with a cross of yellow heart on the inside. The corners are rounded through dovetails and designed to resemble fingers interlocked in prayer. Both crosses are raised (not merely glued on - took some time to perfect this) both inside and out. Wood hinges are purple heart. I enjoyed this project immensely.

Nice work. Will he write down prayers and keep them in it? kind of a neat idea.

TTF…that's the general idea. Truth is, as a retired "Man of the Cloth", he can use it for anything from kitchen recipes to storing laundry detergent.
