Our Rotary Club is having a fundraising auction this week. To participate, I built a simple tissue box, but added a few subtleties. I used the cardboard tissue box, itself, as the form upon which I designed the whole thing. It’s a snug fit. I’m pretty pleased with the way the joinery turned out, and the top (1/2” thick) is actually floating inside the sides, but doesn’t rattle much.

Inside the little holes on the top you can see a bit of black walnut. It’s not visible from inside the box because it’s just a 1/8” thick piece, glued into a saw kerf in each corner, with the holes drilled from the top to just intersect the kerf.

It’s made of Oregon White Oak, which, up to a few years ago, was growing in a grove on our farm. As you can see, the wood has lots of character. I’m not sure where the black walnut grew up. Enjoy!
