Dimensions: 12×7x4”. Finish: shellac and wax. Not a lot here but I sawed up some pallet wood when I was trying my new resaw blade out and liked the sapwood/live edge so another box happened. The whole box is from a single oak runner including the ‘Patron’ hinges.

Great box Andy! the grain really has alot character. I like the box finger joints alot and have been wondering how they would look on a sculpted box. How many boxes in your collection so far? You are producing them at a good pace.

You got a good eye for it Andy, there ain’t no doubt about that!
I have to try some of those Patron hinges on my next one.
That nice landscape/stone setting in which it’s displayed for the pictures adds a nice touch too.
Good job my friend.

Greg- I’d love to make one and send it to you to sculpt. Send me a PM after you get caught up as I know you are really busy. Thanks for all the nice comments on this pretty ordinary box.

You’re a master at those box joints. Very nice save on this pallet. Beautiful box, as all your boxes are. I really like your hinges as well.

Nice build, I really like the top front edge gives the piece more character, I think.
