This box was for my daughter. I made this one from the same wood my friend brought me from a building site they were clearing off. It is red cedar and I let my daughter pick out the pull. I got the inside flocked last night and took the pictures today. I finished this with spray lacquer. As always comments welcome. Thanks Russell

Cool box! Yep you killed the wood and brought it back to life. Love the knott in it as well as the color.

It almost looks like some exotic wood (you could of said it was royal Austalian mahogany and I would of believed you), good job on the finish. The knot gives it an added touch of interest.

Great box, like the “bullseye” effect of the knott

Argh, this is all SteveinMarin’s fault… I am now ogling bandsaw boxes. This is nice. I will admit I am not keen on the handle (not a hearts type of girl) but the rest of it is great and the knot is very pretty.
