A Beautiful Box Made Just for Me...


For Christmas my husband made me the most amazing yarn box, I just had to share it with you!  It is made from a gorgeous cherry wood...


And look at those dovetail joints, marvelous!  He did the entire thing by hand, no power tools used here.  Also, a natural shellac finish to show off that fabulous wood grain.



 I love the idea of using something made by hand the old way to make other things by hand, so incredibly neat!



A yarn ball rolling around on the floor drives me absolutely crazy, and now my yarn will be housed in a pretty box while I'm working on a project and stay put and be debris free.  Yay!

  10. Thank you all so much for your kind words!!! I will definitely have to share these wonderful comments with my husband, he will be really flattered! He does beautiful work! He made us a table last year that is stunning, I'm so proud of him! And...he does it completely the old fashioned way, no power anything, and with antique tools...so incredibly interesting!
