Here’s a gift box I made for my buddy Bill who is getting married today. I saved his invitation, save the date card, and a few other things to include in the box (as a starter kit), and also plan to put their card and gift inside as well.
I used red oak for the box sides and birch ply for the lid because it engraves more evenly than the “grainy-ness” of regular oak. I decided to keep it simple with no clasp on the front (to draw attention to the dovetail joints), and finished without stain, just 3 coats of polyurethane.
Hope you enjoy it, comments/suggestions are always welcome!
