Mom asked me to make a wooden tissue box cover for her and here it is. Made out of sycamore with golden oak stain and three coats of poly. This was my first test run with my new Wood Smith box joint jig. Didn’t do too bad for first time.

Nice job on the tissue box. How is the lid attached?

Thanks guys. trifern, the lid is glued on. It was a fairly tight fit so I figured the glue would hold it….. As long as my Mom doesn’t pick it up and throw it at someone…..
