Memory Box

Memory Box – Modeled on an old-fashioned portable file box, this curly rock maple box with a yellowheart and chechen accent stripe opens to reveal wooden file separators with year-level tabs to hold treasured love letters from a devoted spouse penned and secreted in her husband’s luggage as he departed on business trips many years ago.

The letters triggered enduring memories and prompted the husband to ask me to design an appropriate way to organize, protect and store these treasured letters.  I also had two of the short notes she put in his lunch bags laser-engraved on the inside of the top, to be visible whenever the box is opened.
