Birthday box.

My cousin just turned 75. They're having a get together with a buffet for her tomorrow. I made her a gift box with significant wood. She is a nun. So the box is made of church pew oak. The lid is from a squared timber salvaged from one of the original buildings on our grandfather's homestead. The cross is made from part of a spool that our grandmother used to work the wool. I have attached a photo of what that thing looked like.

Nice box. Your cousin will appreciate it very much.

I am trying to figure out the purpose of that "clamping jig" (???, my term) with the dowels and strings.

that is a spool that they put the wool on after it has been spun. It is to illustrate what the two 2x2 pieces with the holes on top of the squared timber looked like. And by the way she loved it. we just got back from the gathering.
