This box was pulled together from the scrap pile. Didn’t even have enough wood to make the sides all the same species. The top is obviously a glue up and I wanted to give it some kind of different look so I made some angled cuts. When I got it all glued up, I thought it looked sort of like rays of light or sunshine rays. I just left the tear out and burn marks from construction since it was just a “trial” piece. The best part is I’ll give it to one of my kids and they will think that the “defects” are the best part of the whole thing. Gotta love that about kids, they appreciate stuff for what it is and never worry about the flaws or what it isn’t. Threw in a photo of them. Hope that isn’t against the posting rules. Sorry if it is. Thanks for looking.
