These boxes are identical. You can easily ascertain this assumption merely by looking at them. Go ahead, try it!

I have lots of access to beetle kill out here in CO, so that’s why I use it so much. But…..and that’s a big but…ha ha, big but!.......BUT…..I just love the contrast of dark, rich walnut with the soft, pale blue of beetle-killed wood.

I’ve finished the last several boxes that I’ve made with mineral oil. I like the matte finish. And the wood retains its natural smell. So, that’s pretty cool.

I’ll probably be giving these away to someone who wants to put things in them.
