This is a little design experiment by using a different material into a box design.
I made a counter top for my daughters bathroom a while ago and had this big chunk of textured laminate sitting in the shop and wondered what I could use it for and this is the result .
The construction of this box is the same as the last few boxes I have posted but with increased hight as it is going to be used in the bathroom as counter storage .
I used 3/8” Baltic birch as a substrate and covered the sheet on both sides with laminate and pressed it over night to make sure it was nice and flat .
The trim is Peruvian walnut and for the drawers are maple .
An easy box to make and finish .



Great design and really striking with the walnut accents. Beautiful.


Very nice Klaus.

What glue did you use?

This turned out really nice Klaus and the textured (terrazzo?) counter top worked very well with this design.

Thanks guys
I used contact cement and the laminate looks like Travertine with just a nice light texture to the surface not filled and polished .


Your getting to be an “Art Box” maker. Nicely done…As only you can do!
