Was casting aroud the shop and found a 9-1/2” piece of poplar 1×3 and decided to make a perfect cube box. Sliding top boxes are simple to make and from a piece of random ‘one by’ I try to make a ‘zero waste’ project. Zero waste isnt possible, but I think I come close.
The box sides are all 1/4” stock so I had to resaw to get two pieces from the 3/4” stock. You can see the 3/32” center offcut.
This is straight off the saw. If you look close you can see a few thow of difference from the two pass resaw. The saw leaves a very clean cut line.
Both the top and bottom were ripped down 1/4” and 1/2” respectively.
The tongue on the lid is 1/8” and the slots in the box are 5/32” giving an easy, precise fit.
This is an easy 45 minute project from raw stock to glue up.
