The entertainment center was getting a little chaotic with all the Wii accessories thrown in the cabinet. It needed a box. ; )

Made of Oak from a shipping crate. 100% handtools from rough to finish.
Im proud of this , although the joinery may seem lack luster. When i started these boards were cupped and out of square. Was a lot learned making this little box.

That’s a good start. You saw a problem and you created a solution. That’s a huge portion of what woodworking is about.

I like the variation the the dovetails.

The jointery looks fine. I’d sure be proud of that.

How’s the bottom attached? Glued up?

Wayne, Great solution. Nice work with the hand tools. I have had a Wii organizer on my todo list for quite a while now. Really do need to get around to it.
