This box is more of an exercise in using cracked wood. The aim was to embrace the cracks and use them as a feature instead of “fixing” them.
This box is my entry to the Halloween Candy Container challenge.

Neat idea and nicely accomplished. If only you had “before” shots of the wood so we could appreciate your efforts even more. Nicely done.
