Step 5: Adding the Lid
-Boxes glued Together
-Lid Pieces (prepped by teacher)
-Clamps and Vices
I prep all the lids for the kids... they are about 5" by 4". I make them about 3/8" thick. Often you can find wider pieces that will allow you to get 2 across.
The only tricky part with this is that the kids have to prep the surface where the lid will go. Use sanding boards to do this. Now sand the lids as well so that the two surfaces fit well together with no gaps. Clamp the box well and totally eliminate any gaps.
