This box is a design from WOOD magazine. It’s made with walnut and cherry. This was a very fun project to build as even though its relatively simple in nature, the curves add a nice flair and the construction requires most tools in the shop. I typically build from rough plans I designed myself. The great thing about WOOD magazine is the step by step instructions and very detailed cut list and plans.

By the way, I’d like to tackle something with much more challenge and thinking of making a Queen Anne Lowboy dresser table. Does anyone have plans or can point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Bob

I looked at this plan alot. Your use of wood is much nicer than the one in Wood. Just great, Bob!

The Woodworkers Edge has a cool plan, and New Yankee has a cool one.

Go right back to wood magazine on line. Or popular woodworking they have all kinds of plans you can down load but it’ll cost you a couple bucks. Check out our site maybe we sell them. Worth a try. jjockmike

The new addition to the Summer Contest supporters is Jim Barry’s Woodworkers Workshop. He’s from Canada and he’s always had lots of free plans and I believe that he is now selling some also.

From a box to a Queen Anne Lowboy – a sign of a lumberjock indeed!

I like this box alot .. I have been looking for plans and found the plans on the Wood website.

If I build it, I would like to find a way to hide the end grain on the lid. I am not sure how to do that though… Hmmmm.

looks great, but you provide no clue as to the woods you used, whether stained or natural. are those drawers. inquiring minds want to know.

The box is made with cherry and walnut. The drawers are mostly cherry with the exception of the walnut handles & 1/4” thick hardboard for the drawer bottoms. Otherwise all hardwood. The finish is two coats of Minwax rubbing poly over natural wood. There are no nails or staples in this, mainly butt joints, dados and rabbets for construction.

The design is great, the construction is clever. I wish it was my idea. :-)

I think I remember seeing this in the magazine, but you really did a nice job. What’s interesting is that it looks like the frame is inside the floating panel, as opposed to the panel floating inside the frame? Very unusual. I don’t think I have seen this concept anywhere else. I really like this one (Favorited).
