Ok, so this box was never supposed to be. I was doing some test cuts on my box joint jig and picked up some poplar that I had reclaimed from a pallet some time ago thats just been laying on the shelf.
Then I got to noticing the colors that were in it as well as the crack and knot. I thought it was interesting so I sized it up to about 7×4 x 3 1/2 tall. Picked one of the more interesting pieces for the lift off lid and glued it up. The box joints fit pretty darn good for my first ones.
Anyways, I brushed on a couple of coats of Poly and used a drawer pull that was left over from my kitchen remodel. I thought the hardware was a good choice because I didn’t want anything that would cover up the natural beauty of the wood.
Currently it is sitting in my shop and it is holding some loose drill bits, chuck keys and other odds and ends. I was very impressed at how well this turned out!
Thanks for looking!!
