I had picked up for free a small set of pine shelves (I got them just for the wood) and had some leftover pieces, so thought I’d make a box. Approximately 10″ wide, 8″ deep and 8″ tall. This box was made as a solid box and the upper 1.5″ was cut off to make a lid. The corners are dovetailed. The top and bottom are rabbetted all around and the rabbets fit into grooves cut into the sides. The top panel is thicker than the bottom panel, so I could raise the panel. I added a lid pull that is dadoed into the front of the lid
I added a tray that fits inside the box. The tray is dovetailed like Paul’s dovetail boxes and the divider fits into stopped dadoes like Paul’s sandpaper box.
Finished with three coats of clear shellac and then paste wax.
I have no use for this box, so it’s just sitting on a shelf now. But it was sure fun to build. Thanks for looking.
