I’ve done several of these and they’re always a big hit. The difference with this one is that it’s pine. I found this piece of pine at a local lumber yard – one side was just as you’d expect. The other side had these wonderful colors/stripes through the grain. I just made sure to keep all of the pretty stuff to the outside. Boy, howdy – pine is so easy to cut and sand…like butter! Of course, I used about twice the normal amount of natural stain and and extra coat of poly. This was one thirsty box! Thanks for taking a look.

I’ve always liked this design, especially the added touch of the inside lid. Great work!
