While making my most recent wine box, I knew it would take some trial and error on the new CNC machine so I made extra pieces. After only messing up one piece, I figured I had enough leftover to make a thinner box. What I came up with was this Christmas gift for my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher.
Based on my favorite rabbet-and-dado design (much to the chagrin of Boxguy Al) I was able to make 1 additional cut and make a slider lid. I used a cove bit to make faux feet, and engraved the top and bottom of the lid with a nice saying I found online.
Woods used were cherry and maple. I originally had planned to use maple plywood, but I found it gets too warped to use for a slider lid, so it’s just regular hardwood. Approximate dimensions are 2-1/2” tall, 6” wide, and 14” long… Finished with several coats of spray gloss lacquer. I am getting much better stamping my name on the bottom, but it’s still hit or miss.
Shout out to my dog Bo (pic 5) who always seems to get in the act when I shoot pictures outside.
Thanks as always for looking, comments welcome and any questions replied too!
