I do a lot of drawing approvals at work and have been using the top of a copier box for a long time to hold my drawings from the drafting department. The copier box lid looks unprofessional and I had some oak plywood left over from building my B-Sized drawing file cabinet so I decided to build an in-box.

Here’s a picture of it with the first coat of spar varnish drying. I think it is a big improvement.

Was the bottom stained differently or is it a different wood?

We still maintain a raft of hard copies of different maps, and I have one of those metal map drawer cabinets. It sure would be nice to have a similar fixture in a nice maple or birch.

The bottom of the in box is hardboard. It gives enough rigidity and is less expensive than a sheet of thin oak plywood.
