Box made from firewood for the /r/woodworking contest.
Split firewood. Cherry, from trees a friend split. He gets a bunch of different trees, usually free, and splits them and sells firewood.
So I split the splits.
Ended up with a pile of fugly "planks." Which I then turned into....
Planks! (really small ones) These are about 2" wide, 8" long and less than a 1/2" thick.
Making panels, glue stage.
Panels. Front, back are 3-wides, sides, top and bottom are the 2-wides.
And I have an actual box. The side, top and bottom joints are all rabbeted.
You can see a small gap between the front and the top. I sanded the open top a little too much and was not able to keep the whole thing square.
Bottom of box, with bonus ring holders I have also been making (wife decided that folks would get ring holders for xmas, I am starting early this year).
Final product. Finish is Danish oil, then a couple of coats of General Finishes urethane top coat, and a wee bit o' wax rubbed on.

The magnificent interior.
I am running out of descriptive language here. It's the damn corner. What else is there to say?!??!
I have been trying to up my finish game. I thought that this one came out not too bad. And I do very little flat work so it was fun to flex those muscles. Thanks!
