This is a very simple and rough box for holding our kindling. It is made from a 17” wide pine board, except for the plywood bottom.
The board had a significant cup.
Flattening the board would have meant losing the rough finish and quite a bit of thickness. I wanted to keep the rough finish on the pine. Maybe I could have forced the pieces straight while gluing, but decided to leave the cup and work around it with the joinery.
I attached the pieces with a rabbet. To made this work, I created a flat on all the pieces where they join.
I reinforced the joints with cut nails.
