I made this box in High School. It is currently over 20 years old. Just 4 sides mitered together, and a dado cut in the bottom for a plywood bottom. I did mill some 3/32 willow to make a removable tray. I’d say this box is an antique already!!

I have two flying ducks made in 10th grade if I remember the correct time. My Mother has them stored away somewhere at her house. Haven’t seen them in decades. Their around 37-38 yrs old. That must be what did it for some of us. That school wood shop time. Got use hooked. Nice box.

Matt,

This is a nice looking box and, since it has held up for 20 years, time has proven that it is well constructed.

Thanks for sharing.
