im in a box making mode for a few weeks here, this one is made from salvaged heart pine and with a red cedar top and walnut dividers inside, the outside of the box is made with salvaged heart pine that had a milled profile on it…it, also has a oak bottom which is set inside a 3/8 datto, and there is walnut the trims the top of the box,the inside dividers are removable so the box can be used in different ways. it came from a house that was built in 1900, and the heart pine is truly beautiful wood, thank you for looking and it wont be long before i post my next one which is on the table about half way done :)...grizzman

Hi Grizz
This is a cool box, it with out a doubt has the full blown unmistakable Grizzman design and of course that’s wonderful. Keep up the good work.

Very beautiful, my friend! The wood sure is pretty too. i love the thought of it being made from salvaged wood, too. Think of the stories that wood could tell! :)

I love the mix of woods.

I love the fact that it’s kind of “low-slung.”

I WAS going to say that “You hit this one out of the box,” but … decided against it ;-)

Nice work, Grizz !

My house was build in the year 1900 and when I do some update this year I hope to have some nice old timber out of. Great to see someone using that old wood.

Wonderful job.

Love the reclaimed wood, Grizz… always makes such a nice presentation.
And… as others have said, it has the unmistakeable Grizzman touch.

Griz, that’s a real nice box and that wood is beautiful. Congratulations.
