This box is 4.75 in tall 5 in deep and 8.75 in wide. Made out of maple and oak. Making this box was a bit of a challenge, I found that planing the maple with a hand plane was tougher than I thought. Cutting the mortise for the hinges was a bit of a challenge. All in all the box turned out good. It is finished with 4 coats of Minwax tung oil.
