    My son does some beautiful leather work and was making belts for friends of his who were getting married.  About four days before the wedding he contacted me and asked if I could make a gift box for the belts because he didn’t want to put them in just a plain box with some gift wrap.  So I slapped together a basic box with some scrap basswood I had available and added a simple pattern on the lid so the box would be a bit of a memento for the young couple.

    The wedding took place outdoors on a sunny, albeit chilly, Saturday in January by a frozen lake next to the base of the Steeples Range here in the Rockies.  It was a small wedding (bride, groom, my son as best-man, the made-of-honour, the minister and a photographer) because of the pandemic restrictions so I hope these gifts will help make up for not being able to have all their family and friends to share in the occasion.

    You got that done fast. It turned out beautiful.  Also, tell your son that his belts look wonderful.  Very nice and thoughtful gift.

    Great work both the box and the belts.
