I donate boxes to the local hospital to give parents that lose children. This is made of Beetle Kill Pine with red cedar bottom and lift. It’s 12”×8”×6”. Finished with oil based poly.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Very nice work. I like the big red lip. Strange not to see any bark on it. A new look for you. Is that brass rod part of the hinge? Very good thing you are doing at the hospital.

I just can’t believe the things you do with beetle kill pine. The cedar accents just put this above all.

Nice box but even nicer that you do this for grieving parents. But that’s the kind of guy you are.
