Neat new production tool

A good friend and one of our favorite freelance DPs (Ben Mesker in Florida) has created a really neat production tool called Joker Boxes. These wood boxes are super versatile, really great for organizing grip/set gear and are very well built.

Thanks for passing it along Walter. In addition to being a very good DP, Ben is quite the wood worker. He started out by making apple boxes for himself, then others. Then he started to tinker and made several prototypes of the Joker Boxes - getting feedback and suggestions from shooters, gaffers and grips along the way.
The feedback was so good, he decided to start a business for the product.
My guess is that he'll continue to take feedback and will probably develop more products and/or variations as time goes by.
For all my COW friends, he's "good people!"
Production is fun - but lets not forget: Nobody ever died on the video table!
