It looks like pine. I like the recessed lid.

Silly bands for silly daughters. It looks nice.

Maybe you could drill a pilot hole and drive some brass pins (made from brass rod cutoffs) in from the sides near the back for a hinge?

Hard to tell from here.

Disclaimer: I am a noob to.

You can stain pine, but you there are some steps you should do prior to attempting it. I would recommend looking up about pre-stain conditioner and sealing the knots before actually applying stain. Knots, especially piney knots, are prone to weep or bleed but there are sealants to to help prevent that from happening. I wish I could give provide you more detailed information…but I simply don’t know the subject well enough. This only what I’ve read about while researching the for my own projects.

Have your say...
