This is a simple box with butt joints but the story is the wood. It’s a leftover from a clock I made many years ago.
The wood is crosscut Douglas Fir that is very red. The only difficulty in making this piece was the brittleness of the very dry wood.
I donated it to a K of C fund raiser.

(Sorry about the pictures. I can’t figure out how to right them).
