Small Prayer Request Box for a friend.

A good friend of mine asked if I could make a small “Prayer Request” box. He wanted to hang out in the shop with me as I worked on the project. Well for an extrovert a friend is the shop is a good time.

So we started. I had some left over cypress that looked good. Box needed to hold 3×5 cards and some pens. Needed a slot in the top to submit the cards once completed.

We worked out a design. I used my box joint jig for the joinery. Most of the work was machine work with final fitting and smoothing done by hand planes.

Couple of pictures.

    I like your prayer request box. I’m looking to buy four of these for the churches in our Benefice.
    Do you take orders?
    Kind regards Sarah

    What a wonderful idea. I too am looking for such a box for our Bible study. Do you take orders? What is the cost of your service and box?

    Thank you
