Wanted to make a little table-top box for a friend to organize items (goes along with the bookcase project I just completed). Really like the joinery of this project (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/346505) by splintergroup so decided to try applying the concept (although mine is pretty simple) Worked out ok but see some areas in my techique to correct. For example, I didn’t use a backer board for cuts so had some chipout. Added a little divider to keep things organized that is removable – it slides in snug. Doing the divider separately made applying finish easier and gives flexibility for the box use. Piece of laminate flooring was used for the bottom. Finished with GF High Performance.

Looks great BB! You are so correct in finishing before assembly, nothing I hate more then trying to gain access to dark, shadowy corners for finish and sanding =8^0

What are the dimensions?

Thank YOU for sharing your boxes (the additional features that you used sure sets them apart!). I’m not sure of the exact dimensions of this box – believe it was around 12” by 6” and 4” in height.

Wish I had done all the finishing as I had some glue issues in the corners but not too bad. Finishing the divider separately did save time.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I was sent a picture of the organizer in use and looks like it is doing the job! Fun to make projects like this.

Have your say...
