I built this box for my young neighbors, Brayton and Harrison, in memory of their late grandad, Bob Burns. Bob was a woodworker and the box will house his WOODSMITH shop book collection. The box is pretty simple, of birch plywood and walnut, finished with clear lacquer. RIP Bob Burns. Your grandsons are sure to honor your good name.
