Hey Guys,

My neighbor very generously gave me this board:

It is Luan mahogany, and is: 3/4” x 3 1/2” x 48” (T x W x L)

So, what project should I do with it?

Based on your suggestions, I’ll then build the project, and blog the build.

Thanks in advance, and I’m looking forward to it!

Ok, so box it is!

Though without dovetails.

For a few reasons: First, I don’t know how to cut dovetails. Second, I don’t have any dovetailing tools, saws, or router guides, and third, I don’t want to learn on a nice board like this.

So it’s time to draw up a plan, and then off we go!

I like the sliding top idea—I’ll incorporate that into the design!
