So my son, who is 6, wanted a keepsake box after seeing them at a few stores and the one of a kind show. He asked if I could help him make one. We drew up a few sizes, checked out the scrap wood pile and got to work.
His 2 criteria were it had to be all rounded over and opened long ways.
He help cut the wood, glue and nailed , shape the edges. He led the way I was just there to do the bigger stuff. He just can’t decide how to finish it yet lol
If you dont like what you can buy, build it.
