Between times working on my Thorsen Table, I also completed a few small items I had previously started.

This candle box is based on a project I found in a book. The original was designed to hold candles. I kept the same basic size and look, and added a small handle of Purple Heart for an accent. The wood is Red Oak, and is finished with shellac.

The top slides in the groves cut in the sides.

This will make a nice storage box for something, now to figure out what.

Bill great Box. I see you did Dado’s for the end fitting. That would be a great box to try finger joints on.

I agree Karson, finger joints or dovetails would have been a nice way to go. That is my plan for the next one. I have to practice a bit more on my Leigh jig, but it should come out great.

One thing I think I will change are the dimensions. I found it the box will hold CDs, but is a little short for DVDs. They can lay down inside, but not stand up with the top on. Adding another inch or two should solve that problem.

Thank you all for your compliments. It keeps me going when I wonder about some of my projects.
