OK, it's just a box... but I love these things. They are well made, look beautiful and I can find about a million uses for them. Even my cat loves them!

I am happy with the box but I was surprise to see the Matthews name burned into both sides of the box. I don't want their name showing up in my photos, I'd rather have my own. It took about an hour of sanding to get their name off both sides, then I had to paint in my own and stain the wood. It was a fun project but I think I had to do a lot of unnecessary work.

    On set Apple boxes come in handy for so many things. Its a must have on film and photo sets. These boxes are a solid build. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is that the wood is raw and needs to be sealed with polyurethane.

            This is a standard apple box with a Matthews logo on it. It should be noted that they need to be varnished or they get really dirty and gross.

                    I'd never bought an apple box except locally, but with free shipping, it was a no brainer. It was still $-$ cheaper than the 2 places here that sell them. On top of that, since I'm not in NY, no sales tax.The Matthews boxes are my favorite, I like the build quality, and just because I have others, as well as used many others, I've just gotten really used to the oval handles and the space between the ovals (the handles)...so it feels familiar...I like it so much better than the rectangular handles, but that's probably just me. They're very sturdy.

                            I love the smell of fresh cut wood. They come unfinished and smell great but you may want to coat with a stain of your choice to make them last longer and make them a thing of beauty that they are. I used Watco Danish Oil to make them resist water. Well made, strong and light for their size. Made from furniture grade ply. You will find so many ways to use these.
