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.
