Picture of Make a Simple Wood Box at Techshop
I'm going to show you how to build this simple wood box on a laser cutter. I designed this box for a specific purpose but it would work great as a jewelry box, a pencil box (without the divider) or to hold any other small knick-knacks. If you build more than one they will lock together as they stack and the lid will stay open on its own as you peruse its contents. I made mine using Techshop's Epilog 60 Watt Helix.

Step 1: Gather Materials

For this project you will need:

1. The box pattern
2. 1/4 plywood of your choice (I used maple)
3. Fine grit andpaper (I used 320 grit)
4. Wood glue (optional)

Nicely done. Just wondering, how does the hinge for the lid work?

Lovely box. Will attempt to make this over the next week or two. Will let you know how i get on.

By the way, to you take payment for services rendered. As in i have a few ideas around boxes but i'd need someone to create the computer files for them. Cheers, Michael Newham.
