My first entry into a contest that didn’t involve spinning wheels or rolling dice. And, it’s a box. Not just any box, but a box I made. That in itself makes it not just any box since I don’t make many boxes and this one is more than one. It’s a box in a box, ain’t that clever? Well I thought so, and it actually required that I pay attention to what I was doing while I was making it.
The exterior box is 15.5 W x 9 D x 6.5 H and the interior box is 14 W x 7.25 D x 3.5 H and slides into the big box via grooves on the inside. It’s made of some cedar I had left over from a chest I built for a young bride and it’s finished with a few coats of wipe-on poly. I chose the cedar because it was handy and not doing anything else and I think it’s a pretty wood.
So, here it is, a simple box (or two) that marks my entry into the world of full contact competitive woodworking.
