Vintage wooden soap box

Where this all began

This wooden soap box was my very first DIY project when I was 19 years old. I spotted it in my dad’s garage, covered in dirt and dust, but I could see faint printed words on it, and I was intrigued.

My dad could not understand why I wanted an old piece of trash but, you know what they say about one man’s trash…

The box was so grimy that the lettering was barely visible. I carefully scraped the wood clean with a blade, trying not to remove the painted letters. After many hours of careful work, I sealed it with a clear coat of polyurethane. The same coat it has to this day.
