I can locate these all day long at the thrift shops. They are excellent minor storage boxes and you can come across them so low-priced.
Most of them are serious wooden, this a single is not, however.

…up on his constructed-in in our bedroom. Spend no brain to the unfinished wooden best. I am still attempting to determine if I will stain that or paint it.
