Simple box in red oak. I used some trim from HD for the top and bottom and added some 1/2” wooden peg feet to it. Made this for my sister and engraved her initials in the top. I used inkjet iron-on paper to get the monogram onto the wood and then carved it out with a dremel (used this method on my ‘Penguin Engraved Jewelry Box’ as well. I didn’t used hinges but ripped some thin strips that I set inside the lip of the top, these nest into the box nice and snug.
Finished with amber shellac and dark walnut stain and finally polished with finishing wax.
