this was a project that i built a while ago and decided to refinish. it was an 18th centry dough box that bakers would have used. they would have put their dough in it to rise undisturbed so it wouldn’t get bugs on it or be destroyed in the making. since my parents always make fresh bread with large meals i though tihs would be a god project. i would be more than happy to hear your comments

Beautiful work. I have this thing for boxes, small, large…decorative or designed. I love them all.

Yeah, I’m the same way.. maybe there’s a BA (Boxes Anonymous) for those of us who can’t get enough! I’ve got about 8 making boxes books in my collection now, and looking for more! It might be a better retirement sideline, than wresting with 4×8 sheets of plywood!
Of course, I would discourage anyone from getting away from plywood!

Nice box remy and welcome to LJ. I’ve never met a box I didn’t like and yours is no expception. I like the simple construction but disagree that they’re easy. They can be more difficult than large scale projects and contain more joinery techniques than you can shake a stick at if you want.

No there isn’t. Although that is a good idea for the future, and wouldn’t be too hard to do.
