The reason I like making boxes is that I get to use a very small board to make something beautiful and functional. The sides for these are made from two boards that were 15/16 thick, one 14” and one 28”. The last picture shows them book matched and marked out, ready for miters.
These three boxes are to be presented as gifts to three people in my local woodworking club for giving so much of their time teaching beginner woodworkers how turn and be safe.
If you ever have any interest in making a box, check out “Tauntons Basic Boxmaking” DVD. I got mine from the local library, and I think I watched it five times or so in the last couple of years. It really is full of information that is easy to understand.
These are made from figured maple and curly oak. 6×6x4
