This is a Cedar Box I made using a piece of cedar fence board I salvaged from a dumpster. The box is made with Hand Cut Dovetails and the hinges are mortised in using a router plane. possibly one of my favorite tools

Nice, clean dovetails. It looks really good.

just came back from salvaging some cedar boards and googled “dovetail cedar box” for some ideas… this is just what I had in mind. Thanks for posting!
