Here’s the first box I ever made…and it’s almost square! It’s made from a piece of scrap a local woodworker had laying in his shop for 25+ years (his estimation). It was a piece of rough sawn yellow pine. I liked the texture so much that I decided to go with it. I even cut small edge band strips to mask a few edges I had from making the cuts.
All in all, it does it’s job, which is to keep my wife from storing a super sharp knife in a drawer full of knives. I think the rustic look matches the knife well. I finished it with several coats of BLO.
Thanks for looking.
