This is a box I made and donated to the local food bank as a thank you and to help with taking care of some of the less fortunate people in our community .
We chose this box instead the of the box http://lumberjocks.com/projects/183458 that I had originally made for this event .
The shape of the box is an elaboration of the tapered boxes I previously posted by adding a section on top of the tapered bottom and a couple simple shop made handles . Made from hickory with and interior lined with brown suede cloth and Soss hinges the box is finished with BLO and bees wax .
See my blog on our wood show and the draw of the winning ticket .

Klaus, that is a beautiful box and with the addition of the handles, it would have me adding to the raffle. Your generosity is one to be praised and I know how it feels to be able to do things for the less fortunate. I will be donating some turned bowls and boxes for the high school again this year for the needy. When I get up that way hopefully someday, you will be receiving a call.
p.s. hey, who’s that guy with his hand in the can?
