    Coin Box for Grandson

    Not a lot of wood work but a lot of laser work.

    Luke is inlayed with Padauk. Coin is silver eagle of year Grandson born.

    Small family tree in top. List of what we were doing on that day next to coin.

    I have made these for all my Grandkids.

    That is REALLY COOL!

    It is interesting how often "Really Cool" can be just the right thing to say. I don't think the expression will ever go completely out of style.

    Enjoy,

    Neat keepsake. I don't think I've ever seen one of these before, but love the little genealogy tree on the inside.
