Small Oak Keepsake boxes

These 2 keepsake boxes are made from Oak that was reclaimed from a building built in 1830. The trim and handle were made on my router table. Box joints on the table saw. They have an early American finish on them. Felt is on the inside. These 2 are being donated for a cancer fundraiser in March. They are 9 1/2" X 7 1/2″ × 3 1/4" deep.

They look great! Very nice boxes made for a great cause.

Great box. Anytime you can reuse, repurpose or recycle you win, and to do this for a worthy cause everyone wins.

Thanks! I’m always there for fundraisers. What I really like is to repair old stuff that most woodworkers won’t touch. I currently have a large cedar chest that got chewed on by a dog. I have the ornate feet roughed out and now have to disassemble the lid and make a new rail. Also reproduce some of the molding.

Well done I like them both.
