First of all let me say there are quite a few LJ’s here that make some beautiful boxes. They are a great bunch of guys and help us do better with ours.
So this box was not made to be nice looking, not to hold the family jewels, not to be given to the Queen herself. This box is for holding crap. Everybody has a lot of it and has no where to put it. Well here you go. Put your crap in the crap box.
For the guy who has everything, you know he has a lot of crap. I guess it can be used for other things like the wallet I have in the tank but there’s no money in it so that’s crap too. I got the idea from Jim Jakosh’s TP holder and converted it into a crap box. Thought it would be a good gag gift for my son who has a lot of crap on his dresser. Hope he enjoys it as much as the kick I got out of making it.
Stands 10’’ high x 6 1/2×6 1/2’’ Made out of a log that I didn’t think would be good for turning. Last picture shows the remains of the log. Thanks for looking. All comments welcome.

LOL! Honestly, my first response was a chuckle that just escaped instantly. Great gift for the person who has a sense of humor, and very nicely done!

Great job and love the humor. I cracked up when I read “not to hold the family jewels”! Funny!

I love it and have the Perfect person to give it to.
I would like to make one too but I know I would have to a set of plans for it or it would never be made, I just don’t have that much Imagination.

I admire you guys with a good imagination. This box is really neat – any smell when you lift the lid? :-). Nice build, very clever project.
