July, 2011—Built this box as a birthday gift for a friend. This started as a glue-up of pine boards. All the cutting is done on the band saw.
Something new I tried on this box: Lettering. The crafts isle at WalMart has a small bag of black letters on little round pieces of white plastic. These little “beads” are intended for bracelets, I think. They are about an eighth of an inch thick, you get around 300 letters for about $4. These beads fit snugly in the holes drilled for them, so no glue was used.
A satin finish was used.
