July, 2014—I was cleaning up the shop and almost threw this plywood out. It was recovered from a previous project, and I already re-used the best of it. But since I was on a box-making binge, i decided to make a box with it. Pretty ugly wood, with some discoloration to boot. So I stained it blue. :-)

I’m sure it will come in handy for something!

Blue or not, it’s got some nice miters on it…

Box building is fun, always a good exercise in skill bulding and then you end up with something you can use-very practical. I’m with Roger, the miters are super. I like the blue; I’ve done a few blue boxes, using dyes.

Thanks all for the nice comments.

Skylark53 – Yep, I used blue dye. It’s water-based and really does the job.

Love it! Great way to use up scrap wood… It has simple appeal.

Have your say...
