First I would try the search at the top of this page. Type in Box, and see if there’s something you like.
Or select the tab that says PROJECTS and then select BOX. You will about 100 there.

I would recommend getting a copy of Doug Stowe’s Basic Box Making. It is fairly good guide for building small boxes.

Or just do what I’m doing. Start throwing some wood together and realize all the things you haven’t considered!

There are a lot of free plans on the net. You should be able to find something you like and download detailed instructions.

The tablesaw gives you nearly limitless options for box making. If you want curves, you can kerf bend stock, you can also cut finger joints or dovetails, or some simple inlays.
I usually find that when I have a project, but no design, the easiest way to get started is to make some sawdust. Take some lumber, and cut off everything that isn’t a box. The design can often be found in the lumber itself.
