For the first part of the project, you must ask yourself, “What size is the box going to be?” If you aren’t sure, just take a couple 2×4’s and glue them together, or get a chunk of a cedar 4×4, they work good, and smell nice when they are cut up. You can get as elaborate as you want later on, but for starters keep things simple to manage.
The project must be made from a solid piece of wood or several pieces glued together to become solid. By laminating several types of wood together you can get some cool designs.
