Years ago, all of the Dynamite was shipped in this type of wooden box. Some of them were built
with finger joints at the corners. The miners used to bring the boxes home, & make things out of
them. I’ve even seen them used to sheath garages, & sheds.
These old boxes are an antique collectors item now.
Nowadays they use ammonium nitrate fertilizer for blasting.
This box had been used for junk, & stuff out in our change house at the cabin, it had belonged Barb’s Dad.
A couple of years ago I converted it to this magazine shelf.
The top, & shelves are from an old entertainment cabinet someone had junked.
I did some dumpster diving to salvage it.
We live about a mile from where this kind of blasting is done every Wednesday at 11 AM.
It’s similar to an mini earthquake, it makes our house shake.
