Almost forgot about this everyday box that I have around. A friend named Jim helped me (a lot!) make it several years ago, I must have been about 12 (I’m 25 right now). Jim has been a great friend of our family and has aided in my addiction to woodworking.

This box is made of pine from behind the shop and a Mule deer shed that probably wasn’t far from the pine. It was close to one of my first projects so be easy!

Just to put in perspective what kind of woodworker Jim is, I’ve attached a picture of the chest that he made and gave me for a graduation gift. It looks like red oak, maybe ambrosia maple, walnut inlays, and lined with aromatic cedar. The wife and I Love this chest!

Thanks Jim!

For a 12 year old that’s pretty darn good,your friend Jim seems like a pretty good guy.

The rustic hand made appearance really suits the box and handle

Good looking box.
I love those “natural” touches like the antler as a handle.
