Tried my hand at my first box.

Mostly scrap, Poplar with Mahogany from the wall mount of an old clock and inside is Oak from an old dresser drawer.
Finished in a coat of mineral oil.

Very nice.

...and a ‘Wink and a Nod’ from Mother Nature for repurposing those bits and pieces.

very nice looking box. I like how you trimmed it out in Mahogany and carried it down through the legs.
