I made this box as a present for my cousin.
It’s made of plywood, the corners are at 45°. I made a milling above for the cover and one below for the bottom. Then I gave it two coats of walnut impregnating and a coat of clear varnish

Nice looking. I like the finish as well.

Well done.

How does the email get into the box? Is it Wifi-capable?

Ignore my previous comment. Thought the title said inbox, and was trying to be funny. Can’t read, apparently.
What I should have said was that the box is nice and that your cousin will love it.

Jakopo, welcome to Lumber Jocks. Italy is a beautiful country. Your skills in English and photography are coming along as well.

I think you have a great start in woodworking. I like this project. You have done a nice job of planning and working. I am sure your cousin will like this gift. Have you considered putting splines in the corners? It will give your 45 joints much more strength. You might look here.
