Made this box out of some trash wood, I think it’s oak and it didnt turn out like I wanted. When it’s closed it has a spot to grab a hold of and open instead of making a drawer pull. I don’t really care for it so I haven’t finished it completely. Debating on keeping it or trashing it to the fire pit. Give me your opinion.

Adam, the main thing is to have a bit of fun with a piece of wood, & thats what you did, beats the hell out of falling asleep in front of the TV.

Yeah, I had fun and I agree it is better than falling asleep in front of the tv. I have other boxes I’ve made that I put on here that are a lot better.

Adam

My vote is to retain.

You could add value if the drawer access point was accentuated by carving (or by similiar means) a slight curve on the top edge of the drawer.

Hey, you have the time invested and it is a learning experience. Keep the box in your shop and keep your little stuff in it. Finish it and give the little guy a purpose. Maybe improvise on a handle that hooks over or sits on top of the front of the drawer . It will look like you planned it that way. Thanks for sharing the box and your experience. I have done similar things and you always learn from a project!!!!!!

I second Tony’s suggestion. I think a rasp and some sanding to smooth out the sharp edges would make it much softer and add some character. The wood looks like it has some good grain so sanding and polishing could make it really POP!

Good luck and stick with it. Look forward to seeing the results

Love the rough-hewn forestry look. Quite a few grain patterns showing. Finish it. Maybe soften the edges, line the inside and stain darker. Or maybe an amber color.
Nice work!!
