June, 2016 – Some pine scraps diverted from the landfill. Orange dye-stain, and wood handle with black dye-stain. Simple miter corners reinforced by splines. A couple of coats of water-based poly. Some only wood buttons on the bottom. Not sure what I could use this for. Maybe store the remote controls in the living room!

Typo earlier. It’s DYE STAIN, orange, water-based, by General Finishes (purchased at Woodcraft).
