“Snack Box” is the best name I could think since my wife immediately shoved two bags of Oreos in there as soon as I finished it. It’s made out of Mahogany, Purpleheart, and Yellowheart with the size of the box being 10×5 x 8. I applied 5 coats of General Finishes PolyAcrylic semi-gloss with #0000 steel wool in between coats. This is my 11th woodworking project since starting out and I feel it’s the nicest that I have made so far.

Beautiful box!

Were the Oreos a reward for a job well done? Or was it more like, “Thanks hon, I’ve been searching for a place to put these cookies…”?

Awesome box. I like the contrast in the woods.

Transition,
LOL! It was more like “Thanks hon, I’ve been searching for a place to put these cookies”. :)

It was originally going to be a jewelry box but I realized half-way through that it was going to be too small so we just ended up using in the kitchen for whatever. It doesn’t really matter to me what it’s used for, I just wanna make stuff. :)

Out standing box darryl, now you just need to build one to hold the milk.
