You have access to all those species?!? "... cutoffs and remnants ..."

I'm not jealous ...

At all.

Almost all of it is recycled. Except the walnut, yellow pine and cherry which I bought. The Elm, boxelder, silver maple, black ash all comes from our garden dump. we trained the tree remover not to cut everything into firewood. The mahogany is old door frames, the oak is fron churc pews, the flatcar oak is just that, from the deck timbers of a flatcar. And so on...

Lids are cut and bases mounted. One coat of tung oil applied. The yellow tinge is from the flash.

Here are some of them from the garden waste dump. Some from a church and the apple was from my yard.

Thanks for sharing the build and the species with finish! I had a friend give me a 100 board feet of White Ash and I thought it was Ash but wasn't sure until I saw this post. Made a Ranger Derby Car Display rack out of some of it.

Do you have any pictures of your resawing of the logs? I have been doing some of that the past year. Those big logs are something else to reckon with.

Keep up the good work! Those projects last a lifetime and fill the memories.

Nice Boxes! Love the simplicity and look of them. My goal this winter is to build one for each of my six grandkids for their special keepsake boxes. Currently finishing up shop furniture (outfeed assembly table, base cabinets and a new miter saw station) and trying to get organized...sigh!

Here in this town we have a club for retirees which has a complete woodworking shop and.welding shop. The extension you see on the left contains a hall fully equipped with kitchen, bar, audio that they rent for weddings, family gatherings etc. IUt supports the whole shop along with the membership fees. It is their sawmill I use.

That is a neat thing to have a club for woodworkers that you can pool these resources. Good job community.

I found this box design on the web and used cedar to make them out of. Our Royal Ranger (church type scout group) made about 30 of them over the past years. One of our merits is woodworking so I took the boys to the woods and we cut down damaged from ice storm cedars and resawed them and here is a link to that build.
