I made this box out of pine and used ebony stain to finish it with. I made the box to hold our children’s card games because the cardboard boxes they come in fall apart. I can add more dividers as needed. This was my first attempt at box joints.

Likewise, I just recently entered the world of box joints, however your entry was more successful than mine. Congrats.

Theron, it took a couple of tries before I got the joints to work. I just threw together a jig real quick and by the time I finished the box the jig was pretty much no good.

thejosh, I really like the stain also. At first I wasn’t too sure about it. I wanted something more black/brown, but after putting on the poly I really like it came out.
