My First BS box! I really enjoy making these, as I have made several in the last few days. This one was just as simple as I could make it, and it turned out really nice. I will likely be making lots more of these, and I already have two more to post after this one. I am not sure what it is made out of, as it’s made from something in my shop that is unidentified. It’s all made from the same piece, just laminated to itself and cut out. I stained the drawer with some cherry stain to give it some contrast.
thanks for checking it out!

I really like it. My daughter wants to make one and that would be a good design.

Nike job! I’ve been thinking of making one. Maybe I’ll give it try now that you inspired me!
