You can make the box from a few cheap materials such as soft wood, plywood, mdf board and more. After deciding what material you are using think about the pratical size of the box and what will be its purpose. I made my box size Length=800mm x Width=380mm x Height=450 that is a good size for keeping all my baby toys tidy in one box. I chose to use soft wood 19mmx144mm.
- Start by cutting your length and width size using a mitre saw or hand saw.
- Don't forget to subtract the thickness of the material x 2 from your width to achieve your box width design.
- Use a long set square to mark the lines between the joints, those lines will guide you when using your biscuit jointer.
