It definitely looks sturdy! I am afraid it does not look much like a fruit box because of the thickness of the wood – this could hold rocks with little problem, not peaches! You should find a more exciting story – such as pirates used it to carry gold bars! Do you have specific plans for it? – as bvd says, this could hold just about anything. Just curious why you choose to give it that rustic look – were you matching something else?
