Wormy Chestnut recipe box for 3” x 5” cards
Wormy chestnut body with cherry top and bottom and cherry inserts.
I made the box as a cube with mitered corners then cut the top off on the table saw, glued inserts to hold the top in place
Fun little project

Sweet looking box Dick. I’m a big fan of wormy chestnut. Is it reclaimed wood from an old barn in Carroll County?

This box, and the tissue box of the same wood are really nice witn the chestnut. Chestnut is hard to find, the only time I purchased some was a small bit of reclaimed wood. As I remember, it was quite costly.

Hi Jerry,
not sure where it came from originally, I found it in the basement of a contracter – his ex sold it to me and I mean sold – no give aways that day.

yes it is costly when you can find it. Look closely at the tissue box, the sides are pieces glued together
I have a few 1×12 x 10 but I’m saving those for my retirement lol
