Handmade item


This relatively large reliquary box was hand carved in our monastery from imported Red Alder Wood. Alder is a beautiful hardwood that is often compared to Cherry for its soft reddish color.

The Cross design was hand carved into the lid of the box. The background was then stippled to give it an old world feel.

The box measures about 2.75 x 2.75 x 1.75 inches.

Bullet hinges were used for this box to make the hinges as inconspicuous as possible.

This was a meticulous process, but it was a blessed opportunity to combine prayer with labor.
