Here is the Crown Moulding box that I made for my step daughter in california. It was for Christmass last year, but I didn’t get a picture of it before it left.
All mitered corners, including the top. Just added a piece of scrap in the center to fill in. Used the natural mitered edge of the moulding to create the inset for the lid. Same bevel on both pieces so it matches up nicely. Cut a little bit off the bottom so it had a better place to put the felt feet.
Hard board bottom, lined with felt.
Stained with minwax Poly stain. Not sure I liked it. Not as glossy as I thought it was going to be, but she wanted it dark to match her bedroom furniture.
It had a chain to hold the lid but her daughter broke that off. She likes it better this way.
Hope you all like it.
Thanks for looking.
