i know craig does not want to hear this.
he has a lot on his plate...busy guy.
but, buying some very good quality thin plywood, and
cutting some pre sized pieces, one can assemble them pretty fast.
they make a very nice box.
i use wood glue and drill small holes and make
bamboo nails. (toothpicks work fine too.)
i have a few bucks invested in those smaller plastic clamping tools.
you need about four. 5 bucks each at menard's. (our big box in minnesota.=
add some stops for the cover...and in a few hours i can make
four or five boxes.
i have tried them with natural thin wood...like walnut, but ultimately
they crack up...hard to get really good, totally dry thin wood. you would
probably have to use your kitchen oven for a couple of days and dry it
out well. but, that handsome thin plywood is really nice. a four by four
sheet of no 1 is just a few bucks.
oil it with danish oil...and boooza, nice.
