Keepsake boxes for a couple of grandkids.

These boxes are made from recycled oak flooring my neighbor took out of his hallway. Planed the stock to 1/4” thickness and used my box joint jig to construct them.

Your box joints all look very tight and clean (and that’s the hard part). Now just add some wooden hinges and you’ll be hooked!
