Hello guys and gals. Here are two more palm boxes I made out of some scrap. They are made a little longer than my previous boxes. The first box is Yellow Pine, Aromatic Cedar, and Walnut. The second box is Walnut, Black Gum, and Aromatic Cedar. Thanks for looking.

The boxes are really nice looking. So are the previous ones that you have posted.

Now for the really dumb question, why are they called palm boxes?

Awesome job Leith, I love the wood combinations.Being from the south myself, I have access to a lot of yellow pine, but have never thought of using it in this way. Your boxes are beautiful with clean and tasteful lines. Great job!
