Thought I would try my hand at some boxes, all made of recycled pallet wood and flooring scraps. First one I made, I gave to my wife, she really liked the gnarly top, resawn oak I think, and sides look like jarrah. Took a piece to Wood World to see what it looked like, it seemed like it matched that the best, smelled like jungle animals when I cut into it, very nice color though. Second one is purple heart and maple flooring scraps, gave it to a friend and engraved the top for his b-day. Will have to make allot more of these, lots of scraps left, fun to do.

Thanks guys, Chuck, I picked this stuff up from flooring stores, I think it must be flooring shipped from other countries and they use some of it for pallets, try lumber liquidators, thats were I got this stuff from.
