Some boxes I was commissioned to build for our church to hold song books. Made from white oak (plain sawn) there were 28 in all. Details of the project from beginning to end are listed here.

Nice work. Nothing like a good project for a good customer.

Great project – and very interesting on how you did the job. And what makes it even neater – every time you go to church – you can see your work. I too was asked to make book boxes for a church and they brought a sample of what was already existing – I was very excited to try something new and to learn in the process – until I found out they wanted 150 of them, and only wanted to pay for the material. I turned the job down.

Real nice job! You did an excellent job improvising where you didn’t have all the “toys” – I mean tools.

Thanks for sharing your processes with us. It is very helpful.
