Harshest, I like the work. Nice job on the dovetails. Beautiful setting for a photo. Interesting way to add hinges to a lid.

You left out some information that might be useful to your readers. It is difficult to tell scale from a photo. What are the dimensions of your box? Since I have not read the book you cited, is this called a "school box" because it was made in a school shop class or because it was used in school classroom? It looks very like a blanket or toy chest.

Thanks for sharing with us. Keep boxing and keep posting.

This little box is about 15" long, 10" deep and 9" tall. Slightly smaller than the book version.

It's called the School Box because in the book a young apprentice is tasked with making a box for a youndg customer to carry his books and snacks to school. Although after carrying this around for a little I can't imagine how heavy this would be filled with books.

Harshest, thanks for adding the clarifying comments. It is a nice project. I like it even more now that I know the scale and the story. I agree it would be heavy. Lets hope it was carried by a husky boy or a small child with a wheelbarrow. Sad to say, in many of today's schools you probably couldn't get a locked box of this size past the front entrance.
