This design comes from Marc Spagnuolo. He has a great video and article on how to make this.

The lid and base is made from white oak. The sides are walnut.

The sides are attached to the base using a mortise and tenon made at both the table saw and router table.

I cut grooves on the inside of the lid and base to create the open space inside the box. This was done in two steps. Most of the waste was removed at the table saw. The last amount of waste was removed at the router table. The router bit leaves a smoother surface.

There are two barrel hinges that allow the lid to open and close. I routed a chamfer on the back of the box to allow for some clearance.

The finish is WATCO Danish Oil.

I thought I recognized the design. I have one in my projects too.

I love the wood choice. Looks great.

I scored a couple of pieces of 8/4 that should work real nice for a few of those. My girls will love them.

That is white oak?!? Wow… what figure! I’ve never seen oak with that kind of grain.
