I’ve been designing this storage box in my head for years but have been putting off building it due to other “priorities”. Everyone has a favorite piece of gear, my favorite is my 1953 Coleman model 220E lantern. Despite my procrastination I still managed to finish the box ahead of the deadline I set a few years ago. As it will be 50 years old in the spring, I am hoping a proper home will keep it safe and dry for another 50.
Inside on the bottom there is a shallow space with lid where spares can be kept handy. The leather strap and split dowel handle was used instead of a metal grab handle to keep the top clear. As you can see the lantern can be placed on top or the box can be used as a stool for around the campfire etc.
