I found this wooden box last week at the auction. I immediately noticed how heavy ('sturdy') it was. It was painted a grayish color, which i did not mind, but it had splatters of neon orange paint on it which didn't look right. I also had this old catalog from 1946 which was used to order industrial parts. The name on it was Thomas, and since that's my dad's name I decided to put a little project together that I can give him for Father's Day. I glued the pages on the sides, and then on the front I put the castalog's cover. I added the handle on top- it's a drawer pull that was in my junk swap package.
