I made this rather simple box for my daughter to set on her kitchen counter top so that she would have a place to accumulate her spent soda cans. She loves it and uses it daily now. There was nothing difficult with making this little box but I wanted to post it to my projects page, just the same.

Anyone interested in seeing the steps along the way from the building process, as always you can read this in the article about it at my website here.

Dave that is a very practice

Simple? It is the culmination of many skills that you
have gathered and put into this project. :)

Nice box. I like the way you did the handles on the ends.
