A little box made of pine (the sides) and red oak (bottom and top). Made with hand tools. I cut the dovetails pretty wide, european style. The top closes by fitting in a rabbet. Still need to make a handle for the top, probably will be walnut.

Neat & clean dovetails. Great work.
If you’re not going to stack up this box, pull handle (knob) would be nice.
