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)

<p>Nicely done. Just wondering, how does the hinge for the lid work?</p>
<p>Lovely box. Will attempt to make this over the next week or two. Will let you know how i get on. <br><br>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.</p>
<p>Thank you very much for nice project and perfect guiding.</p>
Great job thanks for sharing.
