I made this set of Every Day Carry boxes for my dad, brother-in-law, and nephew for Christmas this past year. The Cross of Lorraine is the insignia of the 79th Infantry Division, the unit my grandfather served in during WWII. He used it on numerous personal items throughout his life — polo shirts, hats, even wood burned on a chest he made for me when I was a child. When I turned the boxes I had a hard time keeping the rotational axis precisely in line with the tenon and hole, so if the lid doesn’t go on exactly how I finish turned it, it behaves like a cam and makes an edge. So, I wood burned the Cross to indicate how the two pieces are supposed to line up. Finished with a homemade beeswax and mineral oil mix. Dad is carrying his toothpicks in his.
