Another daughter is getting married. And the bridal shower organisers (my other daughters) commissioned me to make a recipe box.

For all the details on how I put this pallet wood box together, please check this blog:
http://lumberjocks.com/PaBull/blog/29136

1. the box finished
2. the box open with recipe stuff ready to go
3. that sap wood came in handy to do some writing on
4. proud finger joints
5. the wooden hinge, no metal on this box
6. half way the construction

I will have to go by my daughters place and check out what she is cooking after she is married.

Thanks for stopping by.
Pabull.

That last pic really helped me a lot. I am relatively new to working with wood, but I used to do sheet metal layout work and that last pic was like a light bulb going off. Thanks man…..you have given me a lot of new design ideas/techniques to try out by using sheet metal layout design on wood!

Hi Ben, pallet wood is my middle name.
Its just a little harder to work with when working with hand tools. The grain goes all over the place. More sanding, less planing.

Jay, that is just the funniest thing, woodworking with metal layout design. Please check out the blog too.

This looks really nice and I like the rustic simplicity of it. Good work.

Thanks helluvawreck, “Craftsman furniture” was simple in design. I like it too.

Terry, I would assume it will be right on the kitchen counter, or somewhere close to it.

Thanks Woodbridge, I hope she will say the same.

I like this: simple design, all wood construction, great looking finish. Sure it’s a small project but the person who gets this as a gift will probably keep it forever, filling it up with their favorite recipes over time, and will always think of you whenever they use it. I think that’s fantastic.
