Laminated KeepSake Box - Cool Wood Projects to Build

Laminated KeepSake Box

Though you might think that a box is a box and not very exciting, this particular little box is rather special and can be a cool wood projects to build. The layering technique allows you to very easily modify the length,  width and height to suit your own needs.

Making the Box

 When you have studied the working drawings and seen how the lid and the base boards are set into slots (lid being able to slide in and out) then make decisions as to size of your box and size and plane the wood accordingly.

Our design is twenty-four 1/2" x 1/2" square section in all, twelve long and twelve short. Having planed the wood to a crisp 1/2" x 1/2" square section, cut the wood to length so that is perfectly square-ended and slightly oversize. As the long pieces need to end up at 5  1/2" - meaning when they are built into the finished 6" long box it is best to cut them at about 5 5/8" so you can plane and sand them back to a good fit and finish.

Material List :

A. Lid (1) 3/8" x 3 1/2" x 5 1/2"
B. Base (1) 3/8" x 3 1/2" x 5 1/2"
C. Long Lengths (12) 1/2" x 1/2" x 5 5/8"
D. Short Lengths (12)  1/2" x 1/2" x 3 5/8"
