After being on lumberjocks for several years and seeing people make so many beautiful boxes I found myself wanting to make one or more. The only problem is I can’t figure out what I would do with one that wouldn’t just make it an ornamental piece of clutter. I guess I am just an utilitarian kind of guy. So lets have it what do you do with the boxes you make?

Give away many, sell some… I know the feeling… I gave away 50 cutting boards before I started selling them!
The recipients of the gifts were very impressed and often asked if I could custom make one.
The best thing I did with a small board was give it to the Cape Cod Express delivery guy… everything now gets “delivered” to the inside of my shop ;-) And I have had some pretty heavy deliveries!
