Check out these charming kindling and firewood boxes made from our wide plank old growth boards by our customer Tom. After planing the boards, forming the boxes with dovetails, and adding some decorative carving, he took them to a fine finish with a smoothing plane, card scraper and wax. We still have some of this beautiful old wood in stock, grab some before it is too late!
