The basic design for this box is taken from the Thomas Haapapuro book titled “Fresh Designs for Woodworking”.

I made a couple of simple alterations to the basic design, but it is pretty much as the book lays out.

Last year’s gift for my sister-in-law was another box from the same book. That box was called the Arabian. This one is called Seed Pods. She enjoyed the other one so much that I chose to make another of Thomas’ designs for this year’s gift.

Have a great day Lumberjocks.
