This box was made from clear pine (the sides) regular quality pine (the top) and some luann plywood for the bottom.
The sides are dovetailed, as you can see. The bottom sits in a groove that I created using my new handmade plow/groove planes. The top is a simple pine board rabbited on 4 sides.
The finish is blonde shellac (1.5 pound cut, x 5 coats) with every other coat gently buffed with 0000 steel wool. Lastly I rubbed 1 coat of wax on it as a last step.
