Daughter ask for a yarn box for large skeins of yarn she uses in some projects. Ambrosia Maple per her choice. Box is 9” X 7” X 7”. 3/8” thick wood. Bottom is 1/8” Baltic Birch ply. Used a staggered box joint for the corners. 5 coats of wipe on poly. Cured then buffed and waxed and buffed again. Nothing original here looked on LJs postings for ideas. Did use the laser to engrave the yarn balls on the ends. The upper two holes in the end pieces is to insert the knitting needles between knit sessions. The needles then stick into the skein in the box keeping all in place.

With so few words 987, you spin a fair yarm!

Nice to see you exercising the laser other than frisbeeing Duke.

Thanks for the comments….Duke gets his farr share and more. Usually a very active dog, however tends to find a corner in the shop and sleep when he is out. Power tool noise he pays no attention. Leave him out of the shop if the laser is being used, even when the laser enclosure is closed.

Pretty box, and great craftsmanship on the corners. I had to look closer and it appears that you skipped on the finger joints. And it looks great.

The box was made for the “Big hank of yarn” and it does fill the box, as it gets used up of course the box is not quite as full.
