This is the box a made for the 2018 Lumberjocks.com Box Swap. It is made from pine and a darker wood that came from a weathered 4×4, so it could very well be pine as well. I used a stacked method of shorter and longer strips to form the box joints. I wanted to do all the work by hand but I did end up ripping the boards on the table saw. However, everything else was done by hand. I finished the box with boiled linseed oil and used Shellac for the topcoat.
I enjoyed working on this project and being a part of the box swap over at Lumberjocks. The gentleman that received my box as part of the event said that he likes it and will definitely find a use for it. There were a lot of beautifully crafted and ornate boxes made for the swap. They put mine to shame! Thanks for giving this a read and I hope you have a great day.
