Default Shoe shine box?

Howdy all. I am brand spanking new to this Forum.
I hope to learn a lot from you all.
I have DeWalt Router, Bosch Router Box, Porter Cable Jointer, Craftsman Miter Saw
and a bunch of other tools.

So I am reading my owner manual, running through a few scrap pieces of lumber/wood just to get a feel, an introduction to it all.
I am loving it Yes.

I am NOT looking at Building a House right away, right?
But I have had this decades long passion to, now get this.....drum roll.....
Build a Shoe Shine Box!
I am retired Military and so well, shined shoes are a must.

ANY IDEAS?
SUGGESTIONS?
.pdf?

I want it simple that even a Knuckle Head like me can understand and execute.

Any ideas?

Hey Charles, welcome to the community...


I did a quick Google search "shoe shine box plans" and a ton of stuff came up... lots to look at...

Little projects like these are great little teaching/learning tools. Good Luck

Welcome to the site. There is a wealth of information here, so read, learn and share your experience good or bad for others to learn from.

There are plans on page 20 of this pdf for a simple show shine box.

THANK YOU everyone. I appreciate the Welcome.
Once I learn how to use my tools, I will make a small box, shoe shine box etc and post the pictures.
I think it's a community effort yes?
I contribute heavily to the Mercedes Benz forum, Harley Davidson forum and Suzuki Forums, so here is another Forum, Gosh I love the Internet, don't you?


THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!
