After receiving a box from me, my daughter, she’s 10, wanted to build one. We talked about what woods, size and lids. This is what she came up with. Its a walnut box with sliding maple top and maple bottom. 9.5” x 6” x 3.75”. Construction is basic. We glued piece of walnut to the inside end pieces to give the side pieces more support. The bottom and top set in a groove. I cut the pieces and she sanded and glued the box together. She even helped in chopping the shelf (?) for the walnut pull on the lid. We added the brass pins because “it needed something”. Its finished with oil, several coats of shellac and wax. She won’t tell me what she will put in it other than stuff. It was fun working with her and she said she wants to do more.
