Made this for a friend, I guess you can figure out which team we like, and which team we don't like.

Since OSU has won 6 in a row, I thought a Hexagonal box would be something a bit different.
Comments are welcome, even from Wolverine fans.

A really nice box Mark!! 8)

I am afraid some of the Wolverines might not get past the plaques to enjoy the box but they'll get over it. :D

What happens when Ohio State keeps winning next year and the year after . . . and after . . . and after?

Very nice box!

But as a Penn State alum . . . I uhhhh, say it's still a nice box. At least you haven't beat us 6 years in a row. :D

Nice box! 8) I guess I would call that a "Brag Box". :D
I guess, for future years, you could add a "second story" and move the lid up a notch and keep adding plaques. :D

Great box and a great idea. I'm assuming it sits on a lazy susan and spins to show the 6 plaques. I love the way you carry the theme into the box construction. 8) 8)

Yes, I should have mentioned it spins on a lazy susan mechanism. Thanks for the kind words
