Well, church lady friend strikes again. After making my church lady friend a beetle kill pie box two months ago, she then requested that I make her a box she can use as a soap mold. She makes soap. So, seeing that I work in a woodshop, it sure is nice to be able to clock out after my day is done then go right back to work on my own personal projects. I shoulda started doing this years ago, lol. So, from rummaging for scraps O’ wood in my garage before I went to work till I did the final sanding at my place of employment, this lil ditty took only two hours. My wife said since I am becoming more efficient than I used to be, I should give myself a raise. I fully agreed.
This box isn’t too difficult to understand. I put a rabbet where the lid sits in the frame. I also put a glue line at the bottom of the frame so that after I smoothed up the frame no glue would seep into the cavity inside. I am choosing to leave this box unfinished as her other soap box is unfinished. Plus the soap will kind of act like a sealer anyway. Woods used are maple, walnut and mahogany.
