This is a handcarved white pine box. I don’t usually carve whimsical subjects, so this was just for fun. It’s 24” across, and 16” high.

Very nice, you must be getting ready for the camping season.

Thanks all for the kind words.
Dick, my husband and I are living in a 1971 airstream right now while we sell our house and get ready to build a small one here on the same property. The word “camping” has taken on a whole new meaning.

This idea was inspired by my obsession with vintage campers and a doodle I drew. We’ve renovated several (read 5) vintage campers, and this one is fictitious, but inspired by a 1960’s Scotty that we worked on. It was cute and fun, but now I have an airstream and a 1964 Barth to restore.
Thanks again.

Barb & I lived in a 25’ Spartan trailer the first two years of our marriage.
It was shaped just like your picture, only aluminum.
It was hot in the summer, & cold in the winter. The blankets would freeze to the walls.

Ewwww…. Dick, you are truly from ‘Da Nort’

Christina, the box is really fun. I’d be interested in seeing some blogs and photos for anything related to those renovations. I think those little things are awesome and would like to get my hands on one some day.

That is a very creative piece. I would call it Folk Art. Beautiful.

Very cool camp box! Spent some time in a 25 footer myself back in the ‘70s.
