Just a simple box made from firewood that I made to attempt to justify the hundreds of dollars worth of tools I have.

I think I’ll stuff it with chocolate today (helps the cause)

make it a great day everyone.


Forgot to add where I got the original inspiration for the project. Woodworkers Journal

Wow, very nice figure in that wood! Great little heart box… Great minds think along the same lines I guess…

Nice box! Just curious what kind of wood is it? My guess is willow.

not sure what type of wood this is. Like I said it was firewood, and around here we have lots of cottonwood and maple. The wood is spalting and is very weak in it’s spalted area, but it doesn’t seem as soft as cottonwood.

Chocolate is always a good tool for persuasion.
