heres the latest box ive done. just finished this up today. it is made from Hickory that i got from a pallet and figured maple from a cabinet shop reject bin. finish is 2 coats of formbys “tung oil” which i didnt realize is just varnish til after i used it. i didnt really like the way it turned out so i added 2 coats of wipe on poly on top of that and it smoothed it out a bit. i think it has a real rustic look to it
this is the fifth box ive made and the first with box joints. i used the box joint jig i posted here to do the joints. the hickory is really hard so it makes it a bit tough to work but i think it turned out pretty nice
it measures 14”x6” and is 3.25” tall. im not real sure what exactly im going to do with it yet.
