My niece recently called with a plan to make a memory box for her father to present on his birthday. This of course meant I had to provide the box. The requirements were it had to be light colored, fit in the lap of a seated person, and provide lots of flat surface for application of decoration. This is my finished result.

It is a basic box design, simple joints with flat surfaces. The interior trays are made of 3/8 inch stock and the box is solid Red Oak. The finish is Lacquer. I think it has a simple elegances of design worthy of posting here.

That is a nice design. The mitered feet add a real classy look to it.

That is a very nice looking box. Red oak is my favorite wood to work.
Nice job!
