Made this today. Made the top a tray because I’ve never seen a tray-top box although I am sure they exist because…...............I HAVE ONE! LOL

Box measures 8×5 x 4 and is finished outside only with Howards Feed-n-Wax.

Thanks for the looks and comments.

I like the design. There is some good logic behind it. More of a mans box.

Very original. Is this what they call “thinking outside the box?” (Sorry, couldn’t control the temptation of the pun.)

Very nice Jim. It’s a very appealing idea. I might have to steal it somewhere along the line. As always, that cedar looks great.

On a side note, I am starting to get blueberries. About a 1/2 gallon a day. Know any good jelly recipes for blueberries? Or maybe syrup.
