a few years ago I was into making boomerangs .and after making three from regular plywood with great success i decided to make one using oak from firewood .so i made some boards and did just that .but since valentine's day was approaching i decided to make more boards from fire wood and some old cedar siding to make an heirloom quality jewelry box for my girlfriend .i wasn't nearly as far along as i hoped I'd be when valentine's day came around but she loved the thought .i just finished the jewelry box and I hope yall like it as much as she does

GREAT JOB! Had to shout that. Great use of Firewood. My Father and I do alot of woodwork, but he always buys wood by the linear foot, and still needs to plane it to make it useful. Love the instructible.
