This is going to a teenage boy. I hope he likes it.

I tried a new to me technique. I used my 45 degree bevel sled to cut internal splines. I think it worked very well.

I used a 1/4” rabbet bit on the router table, and left the corners rounded.

I have a lot to learn about painting.

7 and 1/2” long x 4” wide x 5” tall. BB ply, acrylics and Mohawk Dead Flat lacquer.

Way too cool!
How did you shrink a dumpster?
Could serve as a real nice piggy bank.

I like it. Still a box but designed to look like something else. Great coloring. I think the internal splines are something I need to learn!
