I made this thing to kill time while I decided what I wanted to do next. Made from 1 by 12 pine I had laying around it was fun to build and i got to challenge myself with the rounded lid.

The wood you used to just kill time would have been the time I used to just kill wood.
Awesome project and technique!

It’s good to see how some folks kill time in such a positive way. A wow project. All the details look very well done. It would make a good mini desk if it had a some kind of a writing surface.

Thanks for all the comments, the curved lid really wasn’t as difficult as i thought it would be. You start with flat peices for your front and sides, box joint them and cut 22 and a half angles on the fronts and cut your sides to pie shapes, then assemble, now start rounding with a plane until veryy round and finish shaping with sand paper, I wish I would have gone farther with the hand plane though.
