New to the site, always liked working with wood. Bought a used planer and found some skids. These boxes and about 40 more were the result. Found red and white oak also poplar. Had fun figuring out how to make hinges.

Wow. 40 boxes! That’s prolific. With handmade hinges no less. Very impressive.

Not all the boxes had hinges, but I made alot of bad hinges before I got them right. Thanks for your comments

Nice job.

You wouldn’t believe how many pallet boards that I have salvaged !!! They are a great source of thinner project wood and often highly figured !
