This is my second sliding lid box, I made this one exactly the same as my other sliding lid box. Only I made this one out of Ash, and some people suggested I have a contrasting lid, so I made the lid out of walnut. If you want to know more about this box, go to my project list and find ’’walnut box with a sliding lid’’ for more information.

Thanks for reading!

Nice box, Al.

A closeup of the right end would help.

COOL… You’re having fun!

Once you get ‘tuned-in’ you can make a dozen as easily as you can make one… it’s just more boring… LOL

Thanks for the nice comments guys. I might make a bunch of these all out of different wood. You’re right Joe, it might get boring! But learning new things is fun, practice makes perfect!

A highly appealing box! I like the interior end curves. Did you make that with a forstner bit, or cut it out with a bandsaw? Was the bottom cut off and the interior then hollowed out?
Sorry for all the questions but I’d like to make a pencil box like this.
Thanks for sharing your good work with us.
I made a slightly bigger version a while back: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/64693

AJ, I think doing 10 at a time wouldn’t be very boring… of these simple boxes…

Get the wood lined up and cut to the same basic dimensions… and go to it…

Run 10 for each setup instead of 1… No biggy… More gifts with little more effort…

LOL

Ratchet- It’s Ok! Ask as many questions you want! Yes, I used a forstner bit and drilled two holes in the middle, then I just connected the holes and cut them out on the scroll saw. Yes, I cut the bottom and the top of, the top is the sliding lid. It’s the same construction as a bandsaw box. Yes! I like the end curves too! Joe, your right! I could knock a bunch of these boxes out in a day!

Thanks for the nice comments guys! Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
