This is a mesquite box with a lock that is in our Arizona shop for donations for tools and supplies for the shop.
The corners were just mitered so I put in some maple splines to strengthen it up.My friend Tom did the lettering and painting.
It is finished with Danish oil and clear lacquer.
The equipment in the shop was purchased by a few of us and the park did not buy any of it. We don’t charge any fee to work in the shop either. So to keep us in good tools , sandpaper and sharpening services, we have this box for people to contributed if the spirit moves them. So far this season we have purchased some good used tools: floor model drill press, electric chain saw, finishing sander, and 2 belt sanders.. and some safety equipment!! LJ Rosepedal27 found that drill press on Craigslist in Phoenix!!
Our shop is used every day of the week and often at night.
