How to: Make a Handsome Wood and Leather Lunch Box

I wouldn't discount anything that has lunch hidden inside, but I'm particularly fond of this sharp, functional, and 100% handmade lunch tote project.   This cool how-to comes from Mr. Lentz, a Southwestern U.S.-based craftsman who calls himself a "modern cowboy of the creative revolution."

The design features a continuous full-grain leather top, bottom, front, and back, with some lightweight pine sides that keep everything rigid, and prevents your lunch from flopping around. Everything's held together with brass screws and snaps, and I'm digging the mixed-media look on such a practical object.

Lunch is an essential meal in a persons day. It is the meal that keeps you going and ultimately determines how you feel on any given day. The best way to make sure that you get the most out of your lunch is to pack it yourself. Here lies the problem, should you buy a lunch bag, or should you buy a lunch box?

Nice, looks like a fun make. I've got this little tiffin I used to use for lunch, looks like the one here.

Lately, just been lugging naked tupperware in bag. Not so cool.
