Sometimes, when someone gives me a gift, it robs me of words. Recently, I was given this Shaker box which the gift-giver made by hand, bending the wood, assembling it with tiny dowels (no nails), and creating a beautiful patina with finishing treatments. It’s absolutely beautiful. It feels so good to hold. And it’s made from reclaimed cherry wood. A stunning gift. I am grateful to this person, whom I consider not only a colleague but a friend, for bestowing this beauty on our household. It will always be cherished.
