I made this recipe box for my daughter’s birthday. I made something similar for my wife and she liked it. I’m really not a “purple” kind of guy but she likes purple heart. I have a piece of Big Leaf maple that I used some of to veneer for the top.

Into the top I made a flip down lid that will allow her to prop a book or recipe up while using it. When used that way it also serves to protect the recipes inside.

The box was sized to hold a 8 1/2” x 11” paper folded in half since most of here recipes were printed off of the internet. I hope she enjoys it.
