A little recipe box I made to motivate more cooking at home. It’s made from antique flat-sawn southern yellow longleaf pine that was salvaged from old doors. I’m thinking about making a few more of these as I have a bit of this wood left. I was also looking for an excuse to try making finger joints.
MUpdate: I forgot to mention I did the top lid COMPLETELY WRONG and glued it all the way around—Well guess what happened?! When the humidity dropped, the lid contracted, or at least tried to contract, and then cracked straight across it. In winter, I can see the crack and get pissed, and in summer, I can’t really see it and feel better about myself. I should have rabetted it like I did for the bottom
Hey, no better teacher than experience, right??
