Hello everyone !

With the help of hand tools, I made a multipurpose wooden box, using four leftover and recycled woods.
Two types of pine, cedar and walnut. For finishing I only used wax.

All the true details in this project are in the video, the photographs here are just a distant sample of that lived reality, that’s why I like to make videos, I feel closer to the real experience.

Have a nice day, Cheers !

That’s an awesome video Daniel. Thanks for sharing! I’ve just begun to incorporate more hand tools into my woodworking. It looks like you make some of your own planes as well. I will check out your channel for more videos.

Daniel,
Nice work, your superior hand tool skills are reflected in the beauty of the finished box.
Your videos are well done, the process of the build is clearly shown, and I noticed a few methods of work that I find interesting, like the taped boards when gluing up the panel. I suppose this is to align the boards, or maybe prevent glue squeeze out on the show surface.
Anyway, nice video, and great hand tool skills.

The beauty of the leftovers is to keep them :) Sometimes you seem to succeed in combining them, sometimes not. Thank you so much !

Thank you very much for your kind words, I used the tape for both, but mainly to maintain the alignment. Regards, dear!
