Sister in law asked me to build a wedding card box for her big day. She wanted a rustic look so I sourced an old wooden door on craigslist & used that material to clad a simple birch plywood box. Fixed the top with a piano hinge & added a lock.

They were pleased & the wedding was a great party.

Interesting! No finish on the outside? just left it with the original door finish? I like the idea …

Yep. Left it as I found it :)

Not sure how it will hold up overtime but not sure it really needs to.

I was a little concerned that it would be dirty but I got the door from a photographer who cleaned it up before using it as a prop, so it wasn’t like you might expect an old shed/bard door to be.
