1

cut pattern

please watch the video for how i laid out the box joints for this box. its the easiest way i know how to show how i do it.

2

BOM

1- 12″ × 24″ × 1/2" plywood or MDF

wood glue
sandpaper

3

parting the pices

after the X carve has finished give everything a quick sanding.i used a hobby knife to cut the pieces out of the wast and to trim off the tabs from the pieces.

4

clean up the joints

The joints on the box will be very tight. Use sandpaper or a file to clean any ruff spots and to smooth the inside of the joints so they will fit properly.

5

Assembly

glue up and assemble the box. Use a hammer and a scrap piece of wood to hammer the pieces together. Use clamps if necessary to hold together till the glue drys.

6

sanding

Give everything a good final sanding. Because i was giving this to a set of 9 mount old twines i used my sander to round over all the edges.

7

finishing

finish the box as desired. i used nontoxic acrylic paint to paint it.
