Box for my Buddy

Red Oak and Maple Ply with Formica interior.  Stained with Minwax and 3 coats of Clear Shellac.  Door lifts like the old garage doors before they had multiple hinges. Simply place thumbs on either side of top and press up and in to start the door, then lift from bottom to fully retact. Grooves cut with Router and spiral bit, 3/8" Oak Dowels used for 'pins'.

Design or Plan used: My Own Design - Ivan Cabrera

Nice work! :)
