This was a box requested by my 10 year old. He came to me with a drawing of a box with a bunch of dividers in it that he wanted to use to categorize his money. He had drawn it with all the compartments that you can see in the final build. I asked him how he was planning to earn all the money to fill it! He just shrugged.
The box has mitered corners and is made from some leftover oak flooring for the sides and a piece of maple for the top. I was experimenting with using tape to glue up the miters. The technique seems to work pretty well as long as the pieces are cut accurately. Otherwise it’s an exercise in frustration.
The finish is spray can lacquer. So easy….
