This is my attempt at a book box.
Made with mahogany and pine.

For the inlay I just used the table saw to make the grove.
The hinges have taken up the most time but are very rewarding once they work properly.

I will update the project as it progresses with photos.

The book box has now been turned into a letter box for the kids in the school where I work to leave a slip of paper with any achievements they have done, both in school and outside of hours.

It will hang on the wall outside the principals office.

All is left to do now is to sand it and apply a wax finish or three.
Actually I need to 1st burn light lines in the pine to give the effect of paper pages!

I burned the word Achievement into the box to finish it.
