A friend got a new job so I made a small box for her as she likes to drink tea. The top is glass so you can see what’s inside I guess :) Just did that on a whim.

I got the materials from my leftover pallet wood I used on my daughter’s coffee table and found some old houses being torn down that had broken glass on the ground. Cleaned it up and cut to size.

The glass is inside the lid and I used that “cut in half” method to make the matching lid and box. Doing that was a bit scary since I had already mounted the glass when I cut it in half, but it worked out.

I built the box with box joint and cut out the base to make the “feet”, but I’m not really happy with the strength of this design. I’d probably do something different if I wanted that look in the future.

I like the idea of a see through lid.
