Good looking haul Neals, but I'm Very Parcel to that Old Box. Can you show us a picture of the inside of it? And what are it's dimensions, as I have one very similar to it?

Thanks,

Wayne

Outside measurements on the box are 2' long, 11 3/4 wide and 9 inches deep.
I think this may be a local piece. Wood looks to be spruce or possibly pine both of which are common here. Dovetails are handcut not machined. locks and catches are broken and have no marks.
