Beehive Quilt Box

Quilt box to look like beehives. The base is a old wood cook stove base the lady's grandfather used for his beehives. She eventually let me have the stand but to her future suprise I'm helping her two sons build this quilt box for her "late " Mothers Day gift. They're going to sand and paint white to reflect the ones that used to sit in the yard.

Enjoy and have a Blessed day in Jesus's Awesome Love,
Tim

Beautiful construction and a great idea but there is no way I could ever paint that work of art. But everyone has their own reasons for what they do and that's Ok with me too.

Great job TT

Thanks.

It is a tough call on the painting BUT to be more authentic looking around here the hives were painted white for coolness inside.

Chris....for the base, my original idea was a coffee table using a slab I've cut, but after talking with the mom whom was reluctant to depart with stand until I mentioned this box idea and her eyes lit up, but hubby said NO more furniture!!! She let me have stand BUT with her having first option on whatever I built of it to purchase. Discussed later with my wife and her boys (young adult men) this idea for a gift.....AND WAH LAH......it's almost done.

Thanks for looking and have a Blessed and Prosperous day,
Tim

When I was a kid my family had bees until my father was stung one night before a lighting storm and had to be rushed to the ER because of an unknown allergy. My father and brother now make bee hives instead of taking care of the bees. It is just a side job. They will make about 60 every year. The photo takes me back a few years. It looks good.

Thanks for sharing.

The "boys" have decided to go clear or very light stain. This is their project to "mom" and that's fine with me. I think everyone will get enjoyment out of it and I've helped two young men have an opportunity to dabble with wood.

Thanks and I'll try to get finished photos for all.

Have a Blessed and Prosperous day in Jesus's Awesome Love,
Tim
