Paper recycling box

I needed a place to put my paper recycling. I also needed therapy after I royally screwed up a side table that nearly caused me to quit wood working. This is nothing special wood wise, just some spruce that I stained with two stains to give contrast. The dovetails were cut by hand for practice. In the bottom is 3/4 Baltic birch; extreme overkill but it was what was laying around that was good size. Nothing helps get back to it like sawing, planing, sanding, and chiseling by hand. Hope you enjoy

Great project! When I get a bit of time I plan on undertaking my first dovetails. It will be a similar project. I am looking forward to it. This looks as if you have some experience with dovetail joinery.

Boy! I would never put that box on the curb for recycling or the box might disappear with the paper! Very nice!

It looks real nice and is a functional piece.
