July, 2016—Made with the band saw this started as a block of cedar compliments of my woodworking buddy, Sawdust Tom. This box is from a glue-up of cedar scraps from that log. A common question is, how does the lid stay on? See close-up photo of the underside of the lid, which has a lip. The coffee K-cup is shown for scale.
The process to make a box like this is as follows:
1) Cut the overall shape.
2) With box on its side, slice off the top and bottom.
3) With box standing normally, cut out the inside.
4) From the inside piece that is cut out, turn on its side and slice off the top (to use as a lip for the lid).
5) Glue the body together where the blade entered to cut out the inside.
6) Glue the bottom back on.
7) Glue to lip to the underside of the top (lid).
8) Sand smooth.
9) Apply finish. (I used Waterlox gloss on this.)
10) Flock the inside.
Thanks for looking.
