I made 7 boxes of this type from various wood combinations to give as Christmas gifts. The design idea was stolen directly from rkoorman, project 49692. Thanks to him for the idea.

This is my first posting activity on LJ in a while. In my area we had 53 days last summer of temps above 100 degrees F and, since my shop is not air conditioned and rarely cooled to less than about 95, I did not spend much time making sawdust. Now the temps are more bearable, of course, but other things have consumed a lot of my time. Looking forward to getting back at in the next few months.

it’s a very clean box and an unusual design.
