Hey Guys and Gals! Here is another box I made from some pallet wood I had lying around. This box is made of Oak, Sycamore, and Ipe.

Another Great Job Leith!!
Your boxes always look like they want to be picked up and touched… like they would be very easy on the hands… that speaks of a lot of sanding and a careful attention to finishing…
Nice Work, and Keep them coming my Friend!!

Leith, that’s a mighty fine looking box and you have a right to be proud of it.

Pallet wood? Please don’t stack anymore stuff on it. lol

Those woods do a very nice job of complimenting each other. Ya dun good Leith. Another great box. I wish I could find beautiful wood in my pallets. All I ever find is only fit to burn.
