What a blast! Spent seven days building my favorite things…. Boxes boxes and more boxes. I had a pretty big pile of beautiful scraps laying around, and decided I ws going to start working my way through them . Not quite finished bingeing yet, but when I am I will get up a proper posting of some of my favorites.. Until then, I am back to the garage to make some more dust bugers.

Sheesh, your scraps of wood are nicer than my most prized pieces! You definitely did the wood justice w/ the work as well.

That is a great looking group of boxes bigogre. There is nothing more enjoyable than being in the shop and creating.

Fantastic collection of boxes, hard to believe that they’re from scraps. Like every color, the amazing wood grain in them and the finish.

Wow – I would probably have that many in my fireplace before I got one respectable plain old box.
Great work – I’d dig through your scrap pile any time!
