I was asked to make a small donations box for St. Joachim’s migrant ministry.

It’s made from scraps of pine with a top of “butcher block” pine lam from a sheet used on counter tops like you can get from HD. The handle, hasp and brass hinges are also from the HD hardware dept.

The joinery is nothing fancy, just butt joints held with Tite Bond glue and pin nails (got to use my new Hitachi). The slot was cut on my router table.
The stain is Min Wax Puritan with satin Varathane on top.

Thanks for looking. ;0)
