I made a tapering box with an angle of 5 degree with the bottom as smaller side. Here are the details first.
1. Wood came from pallet boards. I am not sure if it is pine. It is green and medium hard though not dense.
2. I experimented on somewhat japanese style of a box… a four corner rooftype lid and a tapered sides.
3. A handle still has to be made….

I need your advise of any improvements. If you look at it.. it will not be a good one as if it looks like a coffin or a grave stone (I don’t know the exact name) just like you find in a museleum.
Anyway, what is best is I learned the techniques in handcut dovetails on a tapering joint. It quite challenging to do. Another good technique I learn here is to level those edges compensating the 5 degree angle to be flat in order to attached the botoom board. In making the rooflike lid.. I learned how to cut the proper angle using a compound miter box.
Well sometimes, a product may not be a good one… Let me hear from your end… and GIVE WAYS TO IMPROVE this TAPERING BOX…
