This is a box I made form some bodark (osage orange for those outside Texas) and beetle eaten pecan. I was going for a pretty rustic and old look, hence the glass bondo in the joints. Originally, I was going to paint the bodark and go into much further detail with the project. Everyone told me I should have built it out of plywood or at least a lesser desirable wood if I did. I was really torn on weather to replace them or let them go. This is my first shop style project and wanted to do better. I built the outside first and then put the pecan liner in which pulled apart the joints a bit. Live and learn I guess. Its not a building so I guess inside out would have worked better.I had plenty of the bodark to replace it and then realized the look I was going for.
