I just got into woodworking this year and have really enjoyed learning more about tools, wood, and what happens when the two come together. Over the months, I’ve acquired a number of tools from estate sales and craigslist and a good amount of wood cutoffs and scraps from local cabinet makers, as well as a couple larger boards from craigslist and estate sales.
I’ve seen many projects on this site and others and have a list of so many things I want to try to make. I thought I would start with the basics and make a box. When I first thought of a wooden box, I didn’t think much of it. The thought of making a box didn’t seem like a big deal. It turned out to be a lot harder than I imagined, but it was a lot of fun and good practice.
What am I going to do with it now? I don’t know, let my daughter put some beads in it or something.
