This is my first project posting and also my very first box. I am very new to woodworking, but I hope that everyone will enjoy seeing this project as much as I enjoy looking at your postings.
I used poplar for the sides and top because of cost and the beautiful patterns especially after applying Tung Oil. I used Birch plywood for the base, cheap and simple.
Cuts were made with a Bosch table saw, edges routed with a DeWalt Router, and sanding with a DeWalt Orbital. I used biscuit joinery.
The design on the top was routed using the Carvewright. www.carvewright.com This CNC router is definitely the most expensive tool that I’ve ever purchased, but worth every penny for making special designs.
I made this box for my best friend.
