A friend gave me an old white oak barn rafter. I used part of it for this. The bloodwood purpleheart legs were made for another idea I had but I thought they would look good on this box so I put them on as an after thought. I like it so much I made another one with a similar design. I think I’ll try to sell some. The top is held in place with brass pegs. Interior is lined with aromatic cedar. Approx. 12”x 6”x 8”. Finish water based poly and wax
