Chuck Box II

A couple years ago I built a chuck box for food and cooking while camping. It worked out so well I decided to make one for my dad as gift this past Christmas.

He has a smaller stove and doesn’t need food or cooking space for 4 people, so I was able to make it quite a bit smaller and lighter.

It’s birch plywood, trimmed with solid walnut. Finished with several coats (5 maybe? I can’t remember) of Helmsman Spar Urethane.

Funny story, I actually had to make this one twice. The first one I screwed up by making the top too shallow, so it has since been repurposed and tweaked to be a rock-tumbler-case for Claire’s rock tumbling hobby. I’ll post photos of that soon.
