I thought I would use up some scrap wood and ended up with this very light weight soft pine box.

I added some Mahogany splines and because I didn’t make the box high enough I had to add a strip of Mahogany around the edge of the lid so I could get the lid to close with the tissue box in there.

This box has space for hiding whatever you wish but because it doesn’t have a lock I would’t keep a gun in if there were children around.

I’m giving this box to my sister in law as a gift.

Thanks for looking in!

I like that you keep changing the way you open these. Nothing wrong with the pine scraps. Looks great and it’s the thought that counts. My friend just asked me to redo a knife handle. Of all the different choices I gave him he chose pine. LOL. I think it had to match a cheeseboard.

.... it doesn t have a lock I would’t keep a gun in if there were children around….

But maybe housing unruly children… but then it must have a lock…

Another neat one w’s’T’C.

Personally, I think pine looks great… if only it was harder than tissues… blow your nose with the pine and lock up the children with the tissues!

Nice box Tony. Pine is Fine. What am I seeing on the bottom of the lid, some blistered, birds eye Maple? Or didja just beat up that pine board? It makes for an interesting peek when you raise the lid.

Congrats on TOP 3.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thank you Jim & Jim J
This box is much easier to make than the ones I make with the locking pins. She should like this one!

Thank you, Buster,
I like just about any thing made that has contrasting wood in it! It Just adds so much more detail and looks so much better!

Thank you Dave,
Making a box this style is so much easier and having the lid open this way would allow a hasp with a little lock instead of the slip catch. But it would take too long to blow the intruders nose off if we had to mess with a lock. I have a ton of scraps!
I try to not toss out any useful pieces of wood so Maybe we should call them Useful Cut Off’s! But a title like ”Pine box made with Cut Off’s” would sound strange I guess!

Thank you, Ducky,
I like pine but it sure dose dent easy when it’s the really soft kind of pine. I gave it a bunch of coats of Lacquer and it sucks it up like a sponge!

Thank you Steven,
Yes it’s birds eye pine for sure! I looked it up! LOL!

Thank you Tony,
I don’t have to walk to far when in need of a tissue anymore LOL!

Thank you Ivan, I used a dado blade make these splines; the fit is much better now!

Thank you Brian,
I have more pine to play with! It’ makes my shop smell so good!

Thank You Bob,
I must now take a break from woodworking and fix my compound miter saw. The armature is eating up my brushes like crazy! The darn thing was arcing like a welder!
I took the motor apart and and buffed the commutator smooth but no luck. The saw is 32 years old so it’s time I bought a new commutator: I got it from Amazon.com for $143.57 US. Ouch!

Great job, I’ve always thought of doing one. I thought about using rare earth magnets. For bottom. Love the details. Cheers buddy.

Thank You Ken, I made a box with those rare earth magnets once and they worked well. I picked my magnets up at Harbor Freight.

Thank You Doug,
Cooler weather has arrived here in N FL and I’m able to enjoy some shop time now with out suffering in the heat.
