Welcome to Lumberjocks. That’s an interesting wood. The dangerous thing about making boxes is that it is addictive.

As Charlie just said, box building is very addictive…
You seem to be well on your way to making some nice pieces.

I like the striped effect the Douglas Fir gives this piece.Its a nice accent in contrast to the sombre grain and color of the Iron Bark.
Boxes are addicting…be careful :-)
