Project Information

I built a box for carrying egg cartons for a couple friends with 16 chickens, using oak I got from their property.The structure is based on this tool box http://lumberjocks.com/projects/154370, but with dovetails. I put dovetails on everything. They refer to the flock as veloci-chickens so I put a Jurassic Park themed logo on each door. One of the doors holds a ledger that I printed.

I left most of spalted sapwood on for visual contrast. The sapwood was more brittle than I expected, I think I would trim it off next time. The body is roughly 3/4" thick and the sides are 1/2" thick. The body came out heavier than I wanted so I routed some material from the bottom and ends.

build videos:
part 1 - the body
part 2 - weight relief
part 3 - the sides
part 4 - final assembly

Interesting egg box. I like how you let your wife do the hard part (painting).

I really like this box. It's a very creative box and you seem to have put a lot of effort into the nice design. It also shows a lot of nice craftsmanship.
