Well I finished working on the box, but I am not entirely satisfied with the outcome. I will post the final pictures when I get home later for you all to see.
My prototype box was built from 3/8” pine, the new box is built from 1/2” walnut, I thought the 3/8” width was pretty wide already but now with the 1/2” it just looks real blocky (if thats an actual term).
If I intend to make boxes using the 1/2” thick lumber my boxes are going to need to be much larger, as of right now I cannot use this box as my gift idea because if I am not satisfied with my product, I can never sell or give it as a gift.
I think I will opt for a larger box, that is enclosed, like a more traditional box, without the open compartment in the front. The 1/2” thick divider is too chunky.
Back to the drawing board!! And I also have some clocks in mind.
I will post the rest of the box pictures later.
