Topic tags/keywords: woodsmith box magazine wood

I am wanting to get the plans for an in/out box. I have seen a few posts that say the plans are in woodsmith magazine issue 182. The only problem there is I cannot find the issue anywhere or the plans for that matter. Anybody have any ideas where I can find the plans?

I question that you need plans.

The box needs to hold papers. That should be easy.

Depth? How many papers?

Connecting the top and bottom—that’s the fun part—doing it your own way.

How far between in and out? Either just decide that, or Google one from an office outfit and scale from that.

(The cool trick for scaling from a drawing is having a rule that is graduated in tenths. Makes the math much easier.)

I guess its not so much needing the plans.. I just like to look at them to get ideas of how to make it… I do generally use my own drawings even for cabinets and such.. Thanks Lee I will start drawing them up tonight

Quite simple construction and you can do it. Slides.. tip.. Use candle for slippery wood. It last than using wax. I think in this project, you use 3/8 to 1/2 wide and 1/4 groove or thick of the slide…. This will leave a 3/8 thiclk slats to be used for the three tray boxes.

I did a bunch one Christmas using Sommerfeld’s raised panel plans; really turned out nicely. Here’s the website:
