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.




For All the woodworkers out there here are some build pictures.
