Step 1: Cutting the Pieces

There are two many pieces to write the sizes of them. The only thing is that two boxes that have a width of 7.5 inches and the lower box has a width of 15 inches.

Step 2: Sanding

As there is do many pieces I used an electric sander and then hand sander the supports that hold the boxes together. I didn't bother to sand the inside of them as much as the outside.

Step 3: Glueing/ Screwing Drilling.

Drill the holes 4 m from the bottom and 3cm from the side of the boxes that are larger than the threaded rod that will be put through them. Drill holes through the supports. Remember to drill them in the corner closest to the middle. Glue all the pieces together and them screw them without splitting the wood.

Step 4: Finalising

I applied clear satin varnish to the project to give it a nicer finish. Before applying make ute there are no pencil marks or finite marks.

    Nice work! This looks like a very useful box!

    I have an old sewing case with this same design, and I never knew it was called a "concertina" box. Thanks for this!
