This is another project from the past.
Part of the deal with getting the tools from Dad is you have to make the projects he would like, ;).
Where he works they have drawings for free items for customers. He wanted a simple ballot box to hold the little slips of paper that people fill out. I decided that I should spend a bit more time and make something that actully looks nice sitting on the counter.
The box is made from Oak and Maple. 3/4” finger joints with 3/4” sides and top and botton. In hindsight, I should have planed the material down some and went with smaller thickness on the sides and top. Still turned out ok after about 10 coats of Varnish on it to get that silky smooth high gloss shine.
