I recently got a hold of some scrap aromatic cedar T&G closet lining so I figured I would make a little box out of it. Smells great!

My wife designed the twisty knob on top, also made of cedar. Finish is 2 coats of wipe on poly; the inside is left unfinished for that great cedar aroma.


All comments welcome.

nice box ,
and the wife is happy !
imagine how happy she would be if you spent more time in the shop ? (joke )
i like to store fish in mine , the cedar makes them last much longer and smell better ! (another worst joke )
i think i need a nap , before this goes to far .

honestly , it looks very clean and the detailing is well done !

Very Nice!!

I really like the finish. The poly allows the wood to speak for itself.

Nice box, James. And that designer wife’s a keeper, too. Ask her if she can send me some designs. I got some cedar left from doing a ceiling that I have been trying to figure out what I was going to do with. Guess I’ll just have to see if I can build a box or two. Great use of wood. The top sure glued up good.
