This is a box I may for my Sons girlfriend. I had quite a bit of scrap in my shop and was between orders so I decided to do something nice for her. I tried a lot of new skills on this so I guess it was a skill builder also. First is the arch top. First one I ever did. Thanks for the tip JohnnyRThrottle. Also using my kreg jig. Box measures 15 inches wide, 11.75 inches deep and 8 inches tall. In all there are 54 parts in here counting the tray.

I’m glad I could help. You did a great job and it looks fantastic. I really like the design. I actually did a similar looking box with the sides like that. I wish I could get some picture of it to show you. Anyways, I hope she enjoys it. Good luck with your future boxes. Johnny”R”

Thanks for the kind comments. I think she really will like this. I know she paints and does photography work so this should fit the bill nicely. Strong enough to hold any camera gear safely or her paints neatly with brushes on top. Thanks for looking!

I really like this a lot. If you don’t mind me asking, how did you end up doing the curved top? I’ve searched through JohnnyRThrottle’s stuff and haven’t been able to find anything about it.
