In this video I will be making this wooden box. It’s made from cherry and is constructed using box joints. It has a sliding dove-tail lid allowing access to the inside of the box. Please see the full YouTube Video if you want to see all the steps I did to make it!
Hope you enjoy the video.

Nice little box and video Jack. I will probably make something like this in the next few weeks for a friend.

Jack, I like your design. It is neat and compact. The cherry, and finish look great. This box has a feel of old world craftsmanship about it. The corner joints should last forever. The only weakness I can see is that the bottom of the sliding dovetail joint will have a lot of pressure on it when the lid is fully extended as it opens. The wood at the bottom of the dovetail is a bit thin for that strain; however, with any reasonable use it should not be a problem. Nice job. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks for the comment. When I made the box I didn’t really think of this however I don’t think this will be too much of a problem because most of the time the lid will be closed. Thanks again for the comment!
