My daughter (5) is learning some card games and as expected, Santa gave her a deck of cards.
I made her this little box to store her cards, or anything else she wants.
This is my very first box, the wood is lenga and the only power tools used were a palm sander and a drill. The wood was resawned from a 1 inch thick board and cut to length using a japanese pull saw (I’m extremelly happy with this saw, it’s amazing).
The hinges are just two steel nails, I was planning to use some magnets to keep it closed, but they got lost in the mail or something. Looking at other boxes I realized the notch to open the lid should be in the box and not the lid, but well, it’s my first box.
The unicorn was stamped using the most simple method I’ve found: print your design in a laser printer, then rub it (face down) with some nail polish remover and that’s it. Works great, fast, and cheap.
