This is really a beautiful rustic piece. The wood shows a lot of character and goes well with the legs. Could I ask how you notched the legs to fit with the box? Chisel? Great Job!

Bud, this box has its own rustic charm. It has a wabi-sabi kind of honesty. The top with the hinge in the middle is novel. It will function well…as does the box itself…but it may not be easy to get at things in the back half of the box. The basic form here is worth pursuing. I think you might want to make a some more boxes of this type and try to improve your ideas with each new box…at least that is what I do when I am working on a new design. There is real potential here with your design. I like it, and I like the look. Nice work. Keep boxing and keep posting.

I like the rustic look of the wood and your idea for the legs. A good looking piece.
