I was commissioned by the shop mgr. at work to build a box out of barn wood to display some kind of collection in. It has to be rustic yet elegant enough to hang in a prominent place his house. This is what I came up with. It’s all white oak from an old corn crib barn that was destined for the bonfire. I splined the corners with the same wood the box is made from. It measures 24×30 and is pretty hefty to move. I love the look of the old wood and the thought of holding a piece of local history in my hands. The finish is just boiled linseed oil. You all were right, this box building is getting addictive.
