Made of salvaged, painted pine offcuts. The offcuts were
too short so I end-joined them with dowels using a
Jessem dowel jig. Then I flattened the boards a little
using a jack plane and ran then through my planer until
they were consistent enough to use to make a box –
you can see there is still paint here and there.
The box is screwed together. The bugle head screws have
a tendency to split the wood so I don’t drive them in
too hard. The dead end is a plywood scrap. The door
is a piece of quartersawn oak. The latch is one of those
things used to fasten table leaves – I don’t know what
it’s called but it’s great for this application since it will
function and pull the door in tight even if the door
swells in thickness and doesn’t want to close easily.
1/2” dowel rods are mounted about 1” up from the floor
of the box. A steamer fitting is on the bottom.
Box is about 62” long.
