Tissue box cover made of Poplar. I milled the Poplar down to 1/2” thick for ease of tissue removal. I used an empty tissue box as a template to cut the opening. Warm Cherry stain and 3 coats of Gloss Arm-R-Seal topcoat.

-- measure 3 times, cut once

DBW, this should work well. Nice thought on the design. I especially like the look and practicality of the rounded edges near the tissue grab area. I suppose the lid is heavy enough so you don’t need magnets to keep it shut. Looks like you have made it easy to insert and extract the tissue boxes. Keep boxing and keep posting.

There is no need to open or close. This cover is bottomless. Just slip the cover over the box.

dbw, thanks, I’ve got the concept now. You might consider this method for attaching the top and rounding off the edges of the top.
