I like it. Of course I’m a rookie too, so who am I to critique. How does the opening work? Does it just slide up a set of grooves? Nice work. You may have just inspired my next small project.

Great idea, I just discovered how to make home made bread, and this will compliment my efforts. Thanks you for sharing this, I’ll start planning mine just as soon as I get all my other “honey do’s” completed.

I like the box. I was also wondering how the opening works. What did you finish it with?

Great project to learn with. Pine is an excellent wood to practice on….it is forgiving…less expensive then hardwoods and is readily available in a variety of dimensions. I use it alot for prototypes and practice. Making useful objects is a great way to bring your skills to a higher level…..practice is the only way you will gain experience.

Once I complete a prototype/practice piece…I will analyze my work to see if I can make different joints to make it stronger and more pleasing to the eye. I might change some of the dimensions….profiles on the edges….and add some additional design elements. This way I keep evolving…just like my projects…

You might want to try a tambour door…..a routed pattern on the top or sides…...change the dimensions – perhaps make the top open instead of the front…use some different profiles on the edges….make a different handle….there are alot of variations that you can do….do a search online and see what design elements you might add. You can try some different finish….use a tint or dye to enhance the grain….you may just want to leave it be…the possibilities are endless…that is what makes woodworking so popular….it is really an artform.

tanx for the comments guyz… about the door, as u can see in the pictures the top piece is kinda further out than the door. I wanted the air not to enter the box much as i could so on bottom of the top piece there is a tiny curve that the edge of the door will fit in there … and yes the door open upwards .. its fixed in that angle

sliding door , i have seen sliding door but never manage to convince myself that i can actually do a clean job at it

the finishing is just shiny gloss i might actually edit the page and add more into it
