Very cool box, nice design. What you have done with found or recycled materials is what I talk about to people all the time. Look at what a nice project you made with reclaimed materials! It’s beautiful. I’m with Jen on the graphics on the bottoms of the drawers.

I’ve been looking for a design to build for my daughters. I think this one would be perfect, especiallyfor my youngest. She’ll probably put her knife collection in it anyway. The bottom drawer will probably hold her pistols, too . Great design, I really like the top.

Gray Wolf, She’s only fifteen so I still keep her pistols in my safe. She probably has twenty pocket Knives though. And you’re right, she scares the hell out of me, too.
