Making smaller projects like this one can elevate the demand for precise handwork and the constant throughout this opening video is to establish accuracy first off. Though this box is similar to one made in Paul’s foundational woodworking course, the design progresses to include all the tenets of drawer making and fitting. The box must be made to exacting tolerances, so Paul takes you one step at a time to show how he works to that end. You can choose any wood you like or have to hand, from Pine to Sapele and Oak to Spruce. If you are new to woodworking, you might prefer to practice some of the steps before you begin the whole box.
