This was just a small box I saw in a restaurant one morning that I decided to make. The box was pretty simple; the only new part to me was turning that handle on my lathe. I wanted the handle to spin so I just made the middle part thicker than the ends that fit through the holes on the side of the box (picture 2). Both the body and handle are made from red oak. Critiques welcome… thanks for looking.

Looks nice. I would not have thought of a handle but it sure makes moving them inside a lot easier.

The handle was, at first, more for just looks, but it’s really proven to be useful when moving that thing around. It’s a very mobile flower box haha

That’s really nice, I love the way the red oak finished up, beautiful. What you need is a giant pencil sharpener to narrow those ends, LOL.

Have your say...
