    Keepsake box

    One for my buddies girlfriend...Wht & red oak & oak ply, wipe on poly.
    She likes it, so all is good The felt liner is just laying in there unattached, as she's not sure what color she wants...the heart frame was freehand seat of the pants stuff, but it's what she says she envisioned...poor girl needs new glasses as bad as I do I added the lid storage and she was elated over it...it's great to build something for someone so easily satisfied

    Good stuff, Ken. The in-lid storage is a great idea that I'm gonna keep in mind for the future. I'm guessing the heart is a picture frame too?

    And the sentiments are special, too..."Tim and Mary, separated by a heart as hard as oak."

    Looks great Ken! I like the choice of hardware ..... It fits the design nicely.
    It will be something she will have for a life-time. Great job!!!
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!
