Oldie Moldy's Decorated Camping Boxes / Wannigans

Haven't been able to post frequently as of late, but after being offline for a while, I came across a wonderful thread over at featuring some decorated wannigans (camping boxes) made by Oldie Moldy.

The plywood parts are decorated with woodburned images from the book "Cache Lake Country" by John J. Rowlands and include some old-school trippers tumping their gear and wannigans...very appropriate. A word however from the maker - he acquired permission from the publisher before reproducing these images for his personal use. Check out the beautiful results below...

Building a wannigan was one of the winter projects on my to-do list, but never got around to it. Thanks to Oldie Moldy for inspiration and permission to repost his photos on the site.

Nice decorative work!
Make several, Murat. There's lots of different ways to make carry handles and lid closures, as well as decoration. I have been using bronze boat nails from Lee Valley, and stenciling petroglyph motifs.
Baltic birch plywood is high quality, good strength to weight.
