    Thanks to all for your comments. The box has its flaws but I didn't take a picture of those.

    Token Box

    A friend of mine is celebrating her 13th year in recovery. Made her a token box.

    Well, this is how it came out. She loved it.
  8. Ron, I order them from Amazon. They get them from Rossi engraving. I recommend them. I always get what I specify in the order. I've been using them for about a year.

    That is a hoot! If my wife saw that she would probably shoot it.

    Beautiful boxes. You did well in front of the cameras. I'd be very nervous.

    John sounds good to me. Matching that is the last thing I want to do. Maybe I can talk the lady out of matching it but for now that is her requirement.

    Thanks to all! I have no idea how old it is but I do know that she bought it at a second hand store. I am making a flag case for her late husbands memorial flag. I am in agreement with you guys on pine. Thanks for your input. I will try the things listed here and see what I get. I didn't expect so many answers so fast. You guys are great!

    Need help identifying this wood and finish. It looks like pine to me but could be really knotty cherry. The finish almost looks orange. I am trying to build something to match it and not sure how to go about it. Any help greatly appreciated.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
