Well, my mother saw this at a sale and decided she really liked it. The nails are mostly square, head and rod; there are machine-made screws in one of the hinges, which looks to be fairly typical cabinet hinges; and the handles look like they were leather belts. The hardware is wrought iron hammered into the pine wood of the box. We assume it was for saws, though it was clearly used as a work station as well. The paint was red and green, and the whole thing smells like creosote.
Anyone know how old this box might be?
