Guy at the place I work asked me if I could make him a cedar box to put a custom knife he had made in. He is going to present it to his son on his upcoming wedding day. Told him I would if he was willing to put the lining in himself…he agreed. Gathered up what scrap pieces of cedar I had and this is what I came up with. Finished with spray lacquer. We traded on it…he got the box and I got …you guessed it, more cedar… lol Side note…hauling 12 foot cedar boards is interesting when you have a 4 foot truck bed…

Nice looking cedar box Buster! Geeeesss only a 4ft bed! Do you have a sliding back window? If you do you could leave the tonneau cover down and slide the board through the window into the cab. Don’t try that if you don’t have a sliding rear window! LOL!

Tony- thank you sir. Not actually a tonneau cover on there buddy. The tool box was open from where I was putting the straps back. Leaving the tailgate down throws in an extra couple of feet which works out ok with 8 foot boards but I usually take a trailer along or drive my son’s old Silverado for anything longer.

Jim- thank you sir. He seemed to be pretty happy with it.

Swirt- thank you sir.

Another fine job by Busterb! That’s a beautiful box, buddy. By the looks of the lumber it was well worth it too.
