Christmas Light Boxes
Just wanted to show you what I have been up to for the past week. My wife & I designed these gifts from Christmas ornaments that I'm sure most of you folks will recognize, I don't know who the artist/designer is, so I can't give the recognition they deserve, except for the Nativity pieces, they were borrowed from the Sue Mey Nativity Cross, THANK YOU SUE, I hope you approve.
The boxes are made from Cherry, Teak, Oak & Birch plywood, and will be presented with a votive candle and holder, and a LED puck light from the dollar store, the recipient can light the box with either.
We are leaving in the morning (5AM) for New York and Thanksgiving holiday with the family, CAN'T WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE. I hope you all enjoy your day with the family and take time to think about the things we can all be thankful for.

Those are really nice, Rick. I've never made any of those myself - yet- but I like yours a lot.

These look great. I've cut a bunch of those ornaments myself as well as Sue's cross. I really like what you've done and may just try a few myself if you don't mind. I know my mother in law would really like something like this.
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
