My Grandson Lawson, who is 8 yrs. old informed me some time ago that he was nearly a teenager. As such he needed a box to put those things in that are precious to him now, but won't be played with when he reaches the magic age of 13. He wondered if Gramps would be able to make something for him to store those valuables.
This box was made from Basswood, and measures approx. 10" X 14½" X 6". It has been stained with Wood-Kote® Gel Stain cherry, and finished with Deft® lacquer spray.
The pattern of the ship has been taken from a publication by "Chipping Away©" -- Free Form Patterns for Chip Carving.
That's a CDN 2007 twoonie embedded along side Gramps message to Lawson.
