I built a couple of pro-type candle boxs before finally deciding on this design.
The wood is black walnut. The box measures about 11” long, 4 5/8” wide, and 4 1/2” deep. The sides and bottom is 3/8” stock and the lid is 1/2” thick. I used box joints. The bottom is nailed on with cut nails and the lid slides in a grove around the top. The finish is Watco Danish Oil, color – medium walnut. I built six of these for a few Christmas gifts for 2012.
The box will hold a dozen or more 10 inch candles.
