After my father passed away, I built this from a pallet I got from work. The plans were from Woodsmith Shop.

I built two of them, but made a mess of the bevel cuts on one so the top of the box got way too thin and not even on all four sides.

Nice design. I like the different sizes of splines and sloped sides.

Thanks Ron, wish I could take credit for it, but it was straight out of the plans. I’m working on some variations of the design, hope to have more pics to post soon.

I like those angled lines of top lid and sides.
