    Hope Chest

    After my wife and I got married I built this for her. It was her Christmas gift that year. I have a friend worth a CNC laser cutter that did the letters for me. Walnut in quarter-sawn white oak. It was finished with tung oil which has held up extremely well over the years.

    Wish I still had access to all he tools in my friends cabinet shop. It made building this stuff easy.

    Why didn't I think of that? All I did was buy a picture frame and put our marriage license in it and mounted it on the hall wall.
