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.

These crown molding boxes are fun to build but a real pain to glue up. How did you hold everything in place to get the corners to close?

That had to be a tricky glue up.

Thank you all for the nice comments.

On the glue up: I used 2 strap clamps. One at the fat part of the moulding towards the bottom. The other in the Indentation towards the top. That seemed to hold it pretty well.

The top was laid flat and weighted, then clamped from the edges with blocks to get a good square edge for the clamps to push against.

Thanks again for all the nice comments.
