Did I hear that somewhere?
I did some looking into it after I posted....I may just do that.
The suggestin is not to use pine due to the properties of the wood, but rather use Poplar.
The dough boxes of the 19th c and early 20th c which are popular in antique stores right now are too big for me.
They are nice though as they have legs and double as a work surface.
Perhaps the size would be bearable if I make the legs to come out from their recessed joints then make canvas sack lining to placce other things inside for shipping....hummmmm
