    Hi, I was sorry to read of Robert's accident while making a stove box. I hope he's a quick healer.
    On the subject of wooden boxes, Robert is following a proud tradition.
    Here are some images of a 67 year old stove I received last month. It had been in the same family for all of that time and was used regularly for picnics and camping.

    The Grandfather of the family had made the storage box for the stove when it was received new in 1939.

    I have now cleaned up the box and the stove and will lacquer the stove tomorrow so that I don't have to polish it again.

    I am told that this model of stove, and its sister the 54, were marketed as "Budget Stoves" for those that couldn't afford the more expensive models.

    Regards,
    Kerophile
