Cut the sides and lid with a guide. Then freehand cut the center.
Here’s a quick project that family and friends will love
as a gift: band saw boxes. In less than an hour of sawing,
gluing and contour sanding, you’ll create a four-sided
box and lid that looks almost seamless, all from a single
piece of wood.
From a 4-in. wide x 3-in. thick x 18-in. long piece of
wood (see photos), you can make one large box and two
smaller ones. Give it a try!
Follow the numbers for the correct cutting order.
Have the necessary tools for this DIY project lined up before you start—you’ll save time and frustration.
Avoid last-minute shopping trips by having all your materials ready ahead of time. Here's a list.
