Well, I finally was able to get it ALMOST done… enough for a good idea, anyway.
Actually, I am making TWO of these boxes… I couldn’t get BOTH of them done to this point… So, I just got One done.
They will be used for 3×5 cards… and other misc. stuff until the room is needed for 3×5’s.
11” x 8-1/2” x 4-1/2
Was made from one 2×4 x 8’ Kiln dried from Home Depot.
Sides & ends are about 1/4” thick while the Top & Bottom are 3/8”
I still have a little more Finish sanding to do.
I will start with Mineral Oil or BLO… maybe some Shellac & Topped with lacquer.
Maybe I’ll Finish box #1 differently from Box #2.
I gotta say this 2×4 wood isn’t anywhere like Poplar, Oak, etc.
That grain makes it a whole new challenge.
I wish I had been able to seriously start it sooner!
1-23-12 Added another Project… Box #2…
