That’s some nice looking scrap… lol.

I’ve always thought that a well placed knot or two adds to the character.

I love it! That box is a real man’s box! It’s got character. I could just sit and look at the grain and knots all day. Good Job!

Very unique pieces, I like that arrow box you made earlier. I too tend to dabble in the reclaimed projects mainly boxes, chests and beer and wine totes. also like that pallet chest you made with the star on it,
