A friend of mine invited me over to his shop to play with his bandsaw. I resawed a cedar log he laying around and his only request is for me to make a box. I had some scrap English walnut and I thought the combination looked pretty cool. The box is pretty simple – basic mortises and tenon. A couple of layers of danish oil and 3 coats of wipe on poly. I’m not a box guy and this turned out kinda funky. The dimensions aren’t great but it turned out okay I guess. Thanks for looking.

That is really neat and yes the combo looks good – of all the boxes I’ve made, I never thought to make a BOX, how cool
