Hi All,

I am trying to build a wood box. It will measure W24” x H37” x D 16”

I would like to have my corners rounded.(Not sure the radius yet)

I don’t have the tools to make this happen. Does anyone know where I can find someone that sells something like this?

Thank You guys…. this is my first post.

I don’t normally spend much time on posts with limited information…...but

Are you looking for corner protective/design overlays ?

You can get corner pcs in brass,etc that simply install after the box is completed

There are many, many types and styles

OR….are you talking about rounded corner pcs in hardwood ? if so…those are available as well…..just know that with this type your box will need to be a design that will accept these premilled inlays.

Actually, your post suggests that you don’t have a clear understanding of what is needed for your project…..and if you do….reach down real deep and try to explain why your doing and what/why something additional is needed.

Is it a shop box or fine furniture? Rounded corners can be made with a ROS, or block planes, or router bits. Probably a few other ways, too.

Maybe a pic of what it is you’re trying to build? As in, a pic of an inspiration piece? That’d help get answers.

X2 = I don’t normally spend much time on posts with such limited information……but….

I have read and re-read the original post a dozen times. suffering from ADHD, dyslexia, CRS,
and a host of other mental and physical ailments, I don’t know if he is asking where he can
purchase the tools to make the box, embellishments to make round corners or someone that
can actually make that type of custom box and ship it to him …...

hopefully he will come back with a more precise idea of what he is asking for.

Edit: The original poster is not asking how to make the box – he is asking where to buy one already made. he said: Does anyone know where I can find someone that sells something like this?

How are we to interpret: “I am trying to build a wood box”? Keep in mind we’re usually in it to make stuff, and not a clearinghouse for vendors selling wooden boxes. Suggesting the ‘how’ is what we do!

Hi All,

I really appreciate all the feedback and also request for further clarification. As I did more research I realized that I can actually build my box using quarter Round Molding on the ends of my box. I think I figured out what I need to actually build it myself. Just FYI I am building a box for a Photo Booth business. The ones sold online are way to expensive for me.

Again thank you guys and Happy Holidays.

Julian – now that we have a better understanding of what you are asking,
yes, building the common box with 1/4 round outside edges is quite doable and will
look good…... the inside bracing can be square or triangle – whatever you can find
at your Big Box Store. glue, screws and small brads will suffice to keep it all together.
if you are going to paint it after fabrication, you can use Bondo to fill any imperfections first
to give it that finished and professional look.
I am imagining this to be a seat to sit on in your photo booth ??

I’ll mention roundover router bits, an example of which is here. The bearing on the end of the bit rides along the side of your assembled box and the bit creates a radiused edge from what was a sharp corner.

CAUTION!!!
If you use a router roundover bit to round the corners of the assembled box, you MUST ensure that there are no metal fastners, such as nails or screws, in the wood edges you will be routing. Failure to follow this safety step can lead to damage to the project, damage to the router or bit, and injury to the user of the router…

Good luck!

Be Careful!!!
