My wife asked me to make a art supply box for her niece. It turned out to look great and I had to share it.

Made it out of 1/2” cherry, mitered corners, and 3/4’ maple for the top. I put walnut splines and mortised the hinges by hand. I finished with spray satin poly.

A nice, practical box. Your wife should be happy and so should your niece. Are you going add anything to the inside to help organize supplies?

An wonderful choice of woods and the edge treatment to the top is classic.

Nice box. Your niece will cherrish it for a long time. I have always like the combation of the Cherry Maple and Walnut together..

That’s one good looking art box. I’m sure Abby is going to love it! Nice job on the hinges as well.

Classic box. Clean lines, great wood combination and solidly built. Beautiful. No doubt she’ll cherish it forever…

Nice job. Doe’s the top panel float in the top frame? I love the bevel on it. Couple of dividers set inside would keep the contents from shifting around.

Have your say...
