« Part 2: The middle part Part 3 of My home school project series Part 4: The hard part »

The top two boxes are made out of reclaimed wood I got from an old coffee table I bought at a flea market.
I think it’s cherry, but I’m not sure.
The pieces are planned down to 3/8” and are 2 1/8” wide.
The joints on this one are ‘mini’ box joints done on the PC 4213 jig.
The bottom has a 3/16” rabbit cut to hold a piece of hard board.
The covers are 1/2” pine with rounded over edges and rabbit cut on the table router to fit inside the box.

Looks great. Good to use recycled wood when possible. More environmentally friendly and well dried out too. I only see one box though. Wrong photo?

No, that’s one of two.
