I made this box to put our bread to keep it off the counter. Its made of pallet wood. I think the species to the box part is poplar. I recently read a book on shaker furniture so it gave me the idea for the box. My wife wanted it stained so i sealed it with shellac seal coat then stained it so its not as dark but more even in color since poplar is a blotchy wood. then used a cherry water based stain and shellac final coat for three coats. I added some finishing wax to even out the finish. it was an easy project to work on while i wait on getting a part for my jointer.
