You may recognize these boxes as ‘cut-offs’ from the weight cases on my M-2 and M-7 clocks! I had leftover portions of the weight containers that looked sad sitting on a shelf waiting for a new idea to get a pass out of the basement! I needed something to pack Christmas cookies and send to my daughters. The woods are walnut, maple, wenge, ebony, and spalta beech. Finish is tung oil and hard wax.

Love the boxes. the one on the right matches the salt and pepper shakers I posted a while back. You might want to looks. it is sad to see wood just setting on the shelf crying out use me, use me.

I really like the octagon box. It is something I could make without a lathe. I am always looking for projects like that. I would have to load mine with dark chocolate instead of cookies.
