What I noticed right off was the very even color. That is very hard to do with pine. I have often found that less is more and you confirmed that with your very fine box.

Clean and understated. The staining and finish are excellent. It’s a job well done.

This is a very nice box and quite practical for many things.

This is a wonderful looking box! I was wondering if you made it for your own personal use or if you were going to sell it? If you were going to sell it, what do you think you could get for it? Ive been building things for my own home, but I have thought about potentially building things for some extra cash and wanted to start small, and this looks like something I could do!
Thanks,
Trevor

Sorry it took so long to get back to you…
I originally made a couple boxes for use in my shop, but then ended up making two to sell. The price, sadly enough, is greatly dependent on your area. People around where I live want a thousand dollar item for ten dollars and still try to haggle the price down.

I have a booth in a local consignment store, but the cash flow isn’t good – more going out for space rental than what is coming in from sales. I also am developing my own website to try and sell some of my things.

That’s alright! I’m in the midwest, and I think I would be in the same boat as far as price is concerned. Too bad the consignment store isn’t working out. Have you tried selling items on the Facebook garage sale sites? I haven’t tried selling any furniture pieces yet myself on the Facebook garage sale, but I have sold other items and it works out fairly well.
