Here it is!

Box #2

Yes, it’s past the deadline and does NOT count…

BUT, I made both boxes at the same time out of the same 2×4…

I just could not get Both of them finished to the point of getting them Entered.

So, this is here just to look at… LOL

It was fun! ... and a challenge!

Thank you, Jim.

If I had gotten this box done to this point before, I would not have ANY entry into the contest.

After I got the other one done, I realized that I couldn’t make it considering taking pictures, processing pics, and emailing & posting as required… as it was, I only had an hour left… I did want to eat dinner! LOL

You have a way of turning ordinary pine boards into pretty boxes, Joe. Great!

@LittlePaw
Thank you… this is the first time I’ve tried to do it with this type of wood!

It is nice box and it looks like it has been finished exactly the way you had planed it to be. In particular, I like the handle.

Sam, thank you very much… It’s still raw wood… haven’t started the Finishing yet… I think I will test with a piece of leftovers… first.
