This is 3 dougfir 2×4s glued together; just wanted to practice. My daughter said she’d take it so I rubbed some BOL on it, won’t waste much time on finishing it. It’s about 2 hours labor total, including sanding. But it’s a start, hopefully the next one will be better.

Hi Don, Nice first box. Nice use of a 2×4, love using them to practice new ideas and also to make shop caddies and holders.

Nice job with your first box. Exactly how I started, back in 2009 when I bought my band saw. Been making band saw boxes ever since. They are addictive! :-) And fun.

Please make some more and show us. Maybe ask your daughter to draw the pattern for one. You never know what kids will come up with!
