Was fortunate to acquire some air dried sawmill wood from a local Arborist, cherry, ash and walnut, a few pieces of each. The Grandson wanted a box in specific dimensions to keep some things. Used only hand tools, and found it quite a challenge to find parts of each board without cupping and twists in it. Kept some sawmill marks, as we like the look of it.
