ANOTHER PROJECT BEFORE I HEAD TO THE SOUTHWEST FOR R&R AND NICER WEATHER. I TURNED THIS IN A COUPLE HOURS, ALTHOUGH FAR FROM PERFECT BUT I GOT IT FINISHED AND DELIVERED BEFORE I LEAVE FOR ARIZONA. THIS IS A LIDDED CONTAINER MADE FROM RED BOX ELDER. THE USE IS A STORAGE CONTAINER FOR NUTS. I HAVE A FRIEND THAT OWNS SEVERAL WOODED TRACTS OF LAND AND A 10 ACRE BLUEBERRY FARM. HE DOES NOT SELL THE BLUEBERRIES BUT LETS ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO PICK TO GO AT IT. A COUPLE YEARS AGO I CLEANED SOME OF THE WALKWAYS OUT FOR HIM, BUT HAVE NOT GIVEN HIM ANYTHING FOR A COUPLE YEARS AND HAVE PICKED BLUEBERRIES BOTH YEARS. SO I MADE THIS LIDDED BOX AND DELIVERED IT TO HIM. THE THIRD PICTURE IS OF THE LID WITH A WALNUT HANDLE I FELT THIS APPROPRIATE FOR A NUT BOX. SOME PEOPLE SAY I AM NUTS SO I GUESS THIS PROJECT IS RIGHT DOWN MY ALLEY.

Hey Danny, that a beauty. he will love it. the handle is so fitting too! Did you screw on the walnut?
Don’t leave it sit out where the squirrels can get at it or you’ll have an unlidded box or a box with no handle!! Tee Hee!!!................Jim
