I disassembled some pallets and milled the wood down and found a nice planks that were the perfect size for a small box. I didn’t have enough for the top so I used a piece of live edge apple. Some hand cut dovetails, some glue and hinges produced a usable box that sits next to my chair in the tv room. Dimensions are appox 4 1/2”x 9”x 4 1/2”. Thanks for looking

No, not covered just an error. I had one hinge get skewed causing the top to not line up properly. So I just plugged the mortises the best I could and just mounted them on the exterior. Before I screwed up I was going to sell the box. Kind of glad I screwed up.

John, nice rustic, but well crafted box. I like the look. Like you, it looks like it will find a useful life serving others and helping where it can. Keep boxing and keep posting.
