A new memory box was in order for my girlfriend and myself (the old one was my wine box project ) which we out grew. The new box to hold at least 8.5×11” paper, since many tickets we buy are this size, as well as smaller items.

The top tray is held in place with the large through spline, and the bottom is a raised panel.

Bottom is mahogany, sides are cherry, top is maple with a walnut panel. Finish is several coats of tung oil varnish buffed with paste wax.

Nice box. love the idea of the through spline holding the top tray.
Are those 1/8” splines?

The small ones are slightly smaller than that since I cut them with a thin kerf blade, and the larger spline is about 3/32”. I pretty much eyeballed them, so I don’t have exact measurements.
