After making a box for my Dad, I had some spare time and for absolutely no reason, I got the urge to make another box. This one is not dedicated to anyone, a gift for anyone, and actually serves no purpose since I have no clue what to put in it. I decided to make it some kind of sliding lid box because I had no hinges to use.
I thought the wood for the frame of the box had some real nice quilt so when I was building it, I tried to make it with the best quilt on the outside. To no surprise, I realized I messed up half way through hand cutting the dovetails. Silly me, I had marked them so the best quilt would end up on the inside. It’s a good thing this wasn’t made for someone because otherwise I probably would’ve been a little perturbed. Overall though, it was fun to make and it ended up being a design I wasn’t so sure would work (the sliding lid).
I may retire my box making career and get back to making things that I need. I can’t stress enough how enjoyable it was to make this though. Thanks for viewing!
