This is a little design experiment by using a different material into a box design.
I made a counter top for my daughters bathroom a while ago and had this big chunk of laminate sitting in the shop and wondered what I could use it for and this is the result .
The construction of this box is the same as the last few boxes I have posted but with increased hight as it is going to be used in the bathroom as counter storage .
I used 3/8” Baltic birch as a substrate and covered the sheet on both sides with laminate and pressed it over night to make sure it was nice and flat .
The trim is Peruvian walnut wnd the drawers are maple .
An easy box to make and finish .

Thanks Roger
No it’s not a binge but this basic box design is turning into a obsession .

Thanks Thomas
Old fir may lend itself to a post and beam design like very rustic.

Thanks Paul
I wonder if hot hide glue would work for laminate have you ever tried it ?

Another beautiful box. This is a great style. I wish I could watch you work Klaus. Somehow you get these beautiful boxes out really fast. I feel like I’m moving in slow motion when I see how much you get done from one project to another. Like Roger… “I like em all” too !

Thanks for the comment Tony.
Take a look at the first two parts of the blog I did on this box design and you will see how simple it is to make ,takes about ten hours or so depending on the materials used .

Great design series! What type of laminate did you use?

Thanks John
I am happy to hear you like the dasign.
The laminate is a WILSON ART product not sure about the item # but could find out if you like .
What I like about it that it has a texture finish that looks like real stone .The rest I will keep for other projects I like it that much .

Didn’t realize it looks like stone. I’ll bet it is really stunning to actually see in person (so to speak)—unusual and very unique, the Kiefer hallmark of another outstanding project.

I have been hoarding a pile of slate tiles that I have been meaning to use in a project but this is a lot lighter and gave me a chance to try the stone look .

Interesting box build with the laminate. Looks great and very fitting for the bathroom. I have a piece of laminate from the kitchen sink cut out that’s been sitting for a year. Never ever thought of using it for a box. I like the way you think.
Instead of the small squares in front, you could of made some faucet like knobs to really confuse people. ha ha
Great job Klaus.
