Basswood Wedding Cards Box
Dimensions: 15” x 11” x 12”H
I made this box for a customer who will chip carve it as a gift for the bride. The bride requested this size box to hold cards on the day of the wedding so my thoughts or my customers thoughts about the size weren’t part of the discussion. After I finished construction it looks a lot like a file box. I wonder if the bride has plans to use it for files after the wedding day?
On an earlier post I asked for feedback about methods used to cut off the lid of a box. I applied some of the suggestions and had good success this time. I made sure everything was square and set the height of the blade just shy of the thickness of the sides. Setting the height like this keeps the box together when the 4 sides are cut. The cuts met up nicely and using a sharp knife I easily separated the top from the bottom. With a little clean up the top and bottom fit together just great.
Thanks for looking!
