I had pics of the build but they got lost some how. Not happy about that but anyway. The handles I made using black pipe and painted it with hammered tone paint. The box is frame and panel construction. All cedar or old cedar barn siding exept the plywood bottoms which are dadoed in.

On another note, the guy I made the box for wants some lettering burned or branded into the top. I’ve never done this before so any advise would be appreciated greatly.

Branding with a hot iron or using a woodburning kit is easy. Hard part is the box. Great job on that!
