You made a gorgeous keepsake box! I’m impressed with the intricate designs that you were able to accomplish with the woodburning tool. I’ve seen the kits in various stores and watching your work through your video makes me want to pick one up. May I ask how long this took you to complete?

Woodworking projects like yours remind me of my grandfather. He would make boxes, ornaments, cupboards, cabinets, and more as gifts for his friends and family. I’m sure that those who receive your creations from you are as touched as we were when he gifted his to us.

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!

Thank you! From sitting down to sketch out th designs and dimensions to finish; I would say about a week and a half. This was the first time I ever managed to pull off hand-cut box joints (which still took a lot of clean up after), so with more practice and less do-overs that time would be shorter. Woodburning is something I'm trying to get proficient with and it feels very awkward at first. A good way to see what it's like is to take a pencil/pen and hold it like you would normally write your name, then move your grip back on pencil/pen about 3 inches and try to write or draw something. Things like wood surface/grain also throw curveballs, but you can make some nice effects with it. My work here is a joke compared to masters of the medium.

I always say that when you feel the drive to try something, take advantage of it and give it a shot. Skills are never a bad thing to have and inspiration is often fleeting.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thank you for your reply and the wood burning tips! To be honest, the joint cutting is impressive as it looks like it takes the most precision and patience.

Good advice and very true, thanks again!

Enjoy your Christmas as well and have a wonderful New Year!
