Every year I try to help my wife’s business by making wedding boxes for her clients. They’re simple and plain and are made to hold a few pictures and maybe a CD or other archive of the images from their happy occasion.
This year we changed things up a bit, and went with a new design. One that’s easier for me to build and batch out, often using not much more than some smaller scraps and off-cuts that normally might be thrown out or burned in a campfire.
The joinery for this easy to build box is also quite simple. Grooves, rabbets and a miter are all there is to it, all joinery that can be accomplished on a table saw alone or with a variety of tools if you prefer.
Simple and understated, this box can be built completely for utilitarian purposes or dressed up for something more elegant. Enjoy!
