Just wish I had access to some reclaimed Walnut like that, It is awesome.

I like that footed design. The pic doesn’t clearly show how the sides attach to the leg? Is it just butted up?

Thanks for posting.

Urban lumber is becoming a common thing. We have several guys in the area here run a woodmizer collect and mill trash logs/fallen trees/ and municipal cleared trees, a few of them offer prices way below what you would typically see in the lumber yard. If you don’t mind working around bug holes, spalting, and some dry rot the material usually has some incredible character. Its a great way to get inexpensive materials that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill or burned for fuel.

I have a build video of the box construction if you would like to see how everything came together the video is at https://youtu.be/Fsnyhe8oLIE

Thank you, I had a tough time finding a board wide enough with the right color for the lid. I wanted to match the walnut, but ended up with a walnut board that was sort of in the middle color wise. Worked out nice.

Mike, beautiful walnut wood. Love the grain pattern. Very nice design on the box. I hope you will consider a chain to keep the lid from falling back. that much weight would be hard on hinges.

Beautiful design and, as usual, a great video showing just how much work went into the execution!
