Sinker Cypress from the swamps of Louisiana.This was a fast and simple design I built while in the middle of cleaning up my shop this morning.
I decided not to put a finish on this box because it would just take away from the worn and rustic look.

Subtle texture in this one. I almost didn’t notice it. Very soothing to look at. How did you achieve the texture, was it natural or did you blast it with media?

That sinker cypress has some great color and grain (looks like Zebrano). I can’t disagree with the no finish approach if you are going for the driftwood look.

Greg, this has such beautiful grain that I would have rounded the corners more to emphasis that effect. This design has a nice flowing look. Your “simple” is decidedly “unsimple” when you examine the techniques use. Nice work. Keep boxing and keep posting.
