Hubby's parents' neighbor was a pilot by career and a woodworker by hobby. He had a craft that was more tangibly rewarding and valued by many, including me. He made this little chest for my in-laws many years ago, and I had told my MIL that it was something that I'd like to have whenever they want to pass it on. So, now I have it. I keep it on my nightstand so I can admire Mr. H's fine craftsmanship every day...and wish that I were more talented in other areas.
