Making a Car Boot Box

Some of you might remember seen the ‘rustic’ wooden box I made back in July. I think it’s an item that was showcased on the social networks more so than right here on this blog but I’m writing now to let you know that a video of the process is now available to watch on YouTube.

It was a simple project and I’m pleased with how well it’s been received in the past week. What’s more, my subscriber total has now passed 1,500 and is fast on its way to 1,600! There has always been a temptation to create common ‘how-to‘ videos and projects that anyone can make but what I enjoy doing is to show you how I’ve made something; to show you how I operate within my own workshop and, if I can, to tell a bit of a story along the way – because these are the things I enjoy most in other people’s videos. I mean, I could make an end-grain cutting board with my eyes closed!! πŸ˜‰

Thank you, everyone!! πŸ™‚

Even though I scrapped the van for which this was built before Christmas, this is a box that has a home in the boot of my estate car.

Thank you for reading and for watching. Please subscribe to my channel, if you haven’t done so already.

    Boot box – what a good idea
    My boot has a water proofed lining which is about 6 inches deep – and I often remove it what moving larger items to destination etc.
    The thought of a new boot box is sending my imagination into overload!

I welcome your thoughts.
