Default Cedar Box

This basket is made from a cedar fence board I got at Home Depot. I like the "rustic" look of it. It would look great in a cabin somewhere.

Thanks for lookin'

I love it. I think I like is because of the knot holes in the grain of the wood. I've always like that look... but wow I bet that was a tough one to cut.

Great job!! I like the look of the grain and the knots. It adds charm and character.

Cedar is one of my favorite woods to work with. It's easy to cut and looks good when finished. I like that you left the knot and didn't try to cut it so it wouldn't show, very nice!

I like the rustic look to it. It would even look great with lots of chocolates in it.

Nice job.. Can't wait to try my first bowl...maybe soon.
Is that a treated fence board? I have some left from building the fence on my property but was worried about cutting/using the treated wood.
