I was asked to make some photo boxes for a local photographer. He said they had to be able to hold a 2” stack of 4”x6” photos and a usb drive thingy. So I took a big old white ash barn board 1.25”x13”x7’. I originally planned on making 4 boxes. Things didn’t go as planned… Very quickly 4 became 2 when I made a few cuts that were just a little short. Maybe I should measure more?... Then things went great for a while. I had 2 boxes coming along perfectly. 2 twin boxes made from the same board. It would have been sweet. Then like the super awesome butter fingers I am. I dropped one of the boxes onto a spinning blade. I don’t even know why it was near the table saw at that stage… Sometimes I do the smartest stuff I swear. Anyway… I made this 1 box with a rremovable insert that will hold the pictures and usb thing. So if they decided they didn’t want it for photos it could just be a keepsake box.
The splines are walnut, and the last pic is the damage from dropping it on the table saw.

Link, it’s a great looking box. I’m sure the photographer will like what he gets and will ask for more. If it makes you feel any better, I did the exact same thing this past weekend. Left a box I was working with next to my disk sander…wasn’t thinking…turned the sander on…..ended up with a nice circular wedge in the side before I realized it. :)

Thank you. It was defiantly a fun project. As for my table saw incident and your sander accident. Even bad shop days are better than non shop days.

Looks great…and hoping only the box was “injured ” when it hit the spinning blade.

Thank you. It’s got nothing on those boxes I just looked at in your project list. Wow! You have some real nice boxes there.
I didn’t come close to getting hurt. (Well maybe my pride) It really was more of a “Doh!” type of things.
