I have been an admirer of chuck boxes for a while now. These sometimes beautifully crafted wood boxes used to store food and other supplies for camp come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are sometimes called camp, patrol, or provision boxes. They also seem to range in their complexity, some being fairly simple with a few drawers while others have fold out legs and compartments for specific tools.

Recently over at Llyod Kahn’s site, he posted about some particularly beautiful chuck boxes made by Dirt Floor Studio. It seems if you are interested in making one yourself there are alot of plans out there online… would be a good Saturday Project.
