Ribbon Box.

Oak benevolence box for a Preacher friend of mine, He asks to build an offering box for their Church, they have Oak pews so I constructed the Box from oak so the grain wraps around the box. The bow is from Red Cedar and white popular. This simple little 5-1/4” X 7” X 12” box has a lift off top and is a gift, I hope they enjoy it.

A very nice gift. The scroll-sawn ribbon is a very nice touch.

Hello oldrivers,
As with L/W and CarvedArtStudios511 I see a very nicely done box,Well done!
I only hope the attractivness of it requires lots of maintenance around the offering slot due to “overuse”

Your project and “other” members would benefit from some construction notes and certainly a few more construction pictures.
The reason I say this these type of projects are very attractive and “reasonably” easy to ptoduce even if looking like a “I couldnt do that” type of project.
Here is one I made my wife in June 2012 after being inspired from seeing one similar.

In closing I must say it although not as visually impressive as yours it would have to have been one of the most enjoyable projects I have ever done. Hence the conctructive comments I made.
