This box is made with gum wood and walnut. 4×4x3.5 I got most of the ideas from LJ Triumph1 thank you.
The style is maybe Asian, Green and Green, and Modern, Who knows. If I did it again I would make the legs longer and more of a contrast in the woods. Thanks for looking, Comments welcome good or bad, I can take it I’m a big boy.

A great looking box.An interesting lid setup.

Some nice contrast on the woods.

Other than the obvious…. what is a potty box?

No matter what it is used for, it is a great looking box.

I agree with Karson, that’s a very interesting lid/hinge setup. Nice job!

Interesting yet cool little box you have here. I am also intrigued about the lid…. Definitely something new to me… And new is always cool in my book. Thanks for sharing… Enjoyed seeing this one….

Well, to be honest, I’m not crazy about the design being applied to a box, but as a chair with storage, I see a lot of possibilities. The top part looks a bit too much like arms, but I definitely like the round center cutout.

I think a little lower to the ground, and with the arms jutting out a little less, it would definitely appeal more as a box. Also, if the lid is any indication, the lighter wood looks a bit thick, and could be about half the thickness it is, with an L shaped downward lip for the handle to attach to. (though the thickness is great for the front, which allows for that amazing recess work!)

I think it’s got great potential and you really should work on making more.

(and that’s 100% honestly, because you said you’d welcome criticism and such. It’s really an interesting box).

When I finished this, it was suppose to be a box. Then when I started to look at it from afar it reminded me of something I had to sit on when I was young and at the lake. I don’t think the one at the lake was this nice. I should have called it the lake house trophy box.

Bobthefish Thank you for your thoughts. I should make a full sized one of these and use it like it looks. Then I would never have to leave the shop. HA HA

My first thought was a liter box? My cats couldn’t fit into it. Well thanks for clarifying. LOL You won’t get splinters from it.
