Making boxes is a great way to explore the idea of building things in a series. When you change the small-scale details, you can change the look of the overall piece. And boxes are simple to make, which allows for more design exploration. This box is a simple square, dovetailed and half as tall as it is wide, with a drop-on lid that is slightly pillowed. The lid has small handles to lift it and help hold it in place. Also included is a gallery of design ideas, for a series of boxes or one box at a time.
