Looking good so far. Does this get a top? What kind of bottom did you use?

Nice and tight.The rustic nails bring it together.
I’ve seen this joint used on the surround of a hibachi.

That’s an excellent box. After wire brushing how do you clean it?

After scrubbing and etching the burnt box with wire brushes, I clean them with a stiff natural bristle brush. I wipe it down with a cloth dampened with a little water.
These boxes are often used at a festival called Setsubun, to hold beans for throwing.
I make these for Zen altar pieces to hold gifts and prayers.

The scorched and scrubbed look is very nice, I like how organic it is. I think I will try that on some river driftwood I want to tone. If it works, it will be in keeping with the natural look I want for a project.
I agree that the hand wrought nails are a perfect compliment.
