This is another small box in the series of boxes I am making. Every box is slightly different than the last. This one is 6” x 3” x2 1/2” and made from walnut. I plan to use a wax finish.

Sweet little box.
I really like the simple design that is very pleasing to the eye.
Post a pic when you get it into wax.
Thanks for sharing.

Great looking box. I like the domed lid.

I was expecting to see a box for a walnut. Very nice nonetheless.

Looks great! I’m a beginner trying to build skills through creating boxes. How do you keep the lid from sliding off of the bottom? Is there a lip on the lid that mates with the bottom?

EYoung,
Yes, there is a lip that mates with the bottom. If you look at some of my previous boxes you can see the lip (look at “Textured walnut and maple box”, for example). And making boxes is a good idea. There are many good examples on Lumberjocks. Magnets are also common as a means to hold the covers in place.

Thank you! I chose boxes because I need to do real projects to practice and small boxes don’t eat a lot of material. I hope I can get to your level some day.
