I have made hundreds of cedar boxes and some oak ones. I Have made them as thin as 1/4” and they work well. I now make only 3/8” thick boxes brcause I mount surface hinges on them and the shortest screws I found are 3/8” long. I like to put inlay on the lids so I like 3/8” there but 1/4” would work well on the bottom of the boxes.
