Hey guys,
I’ve finally gotten back into woodworking and this was the best starting project for me because, as you can see, I’ve been using cardboard boxes to store some of my cloths. Anyhow, the only power tool I used for this project was a drill, everything else was hand cut and sanded. As you can see there are a lot of ropes, it wasn’t my first decision but I changed the design to fix a mistake I made with the lengths. On the plus side I now have a locking system with the ropes; I can pick up the side handles and that will pull the top down tight. I am only upset with the type of rope I used because the rope is shedding like a dog. I’m still very new to this trade, so if you have any ideas or tips, your more than welcome to say it.

You can take a blowtorch and burn off a lot of those extra fibers coming of the jute/hemp rope there. they will pop back up over time, but that’s how you can trim it down periodically.

And by the by, that’s kind of a fun l’il design with the rope hinges / handles / locking mechanism.

That’s a nice box full of ‘drawers’ and very practical. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.
