I've made a couple of boxes. First one is storage our folding cribbage board, several packs of cards and the rules (gets used more than you would think!). 3/8" cherry all around. [edit: oops, ends are 3/8" walnut] Finger joints made on an Incra LS with custom templates produced with pyRouterJig.
Second one is a gift wine box that I made as a test run. Will make a bunch more for a party we're hosting later in the spring. 3/8" alder with 1/8" cherry slide lid. 1/4" box joints made with an Incra LS. Alder might seem like an odd choice but I have a ton of it and it's relatively stable at 3/8".
Both were finished with minwax wipe-on poly. I skimped a little on sanding the wine box - only put on 2 coats sanding down to 320. Will go at least one more layer for production.
Measure twice, cut once and CROSS OUT THE WRONG MARKS.
