As many of you know, Boulder Colorado is under feet of water. So with these last few days off I decided to see what “scraps” I had in the shop.

My cousin wanted a 5×7 frame. I used Hard Maple and Walnut.

I wanted to try recessing 1/8 into a top and to try corner splines. It was a success. Now, what to do with the box? Haha.

All in all, I’m satisfied with the work. My next box will be more in depth but for a first time, it holds things and that’s all that counts :-)
