Tried making a candle box. I just used dado’s and rabbits to put the box together wasn’t trying to go too fancy. Then i made a dovetailed lid and groove to slide in, next time i think i’d just do a dado’d lid. Anyways i’d love to hear any comments good and bad. Thanks for looking guys.

I really like this…..especially the sliding dovetail lid. This is a very nice box. Good job.

The sliding dovetail is coo.

You did a good job on the candle box. I think the dovetail lid is a nice touch. When I built mine I just did the dado joint.
