This was an old chunk of wood that was laying around the shop—hiding—and this morning I decided it was a band saw box. Wished I had taken a “before” pic ‘cause this thing was rough looking! Have no idea what kind of wood it is but it worked real good. Box measures 10”L x 5”W x 3”H and is finished with 3 coats of Danish oil. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Awesome. There’s no such thing as worthless scraps…not when there’s a woodworker around. A guy just has to wait until that fine piece of material tells him what it wants to be. Just a matter of “listening”. I like using rare earth magnets for holding the lids on unique boxes.
