to preserve the the love that that box has seen
over the years, "I would" just slosh some automotive
degreaser around in it just to remove the surface film.
rinse and dry in the sun and fresh air,
then, fill it full of tools and use it - as it was intended to be used.
if you want it to look new and unused, go build one out of
pallet wood or old barn wood just like it.
and put the antique box on a shelf.
and if you hear the Spirit of the Old Man that made the box say,
"How DARE You clean my box" !!! you better listen to the voice.

there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
