Wooden boxes are often one of the most popular projects for beginning woodworkers. Simple, yet elegant, basically constructed, yet easily personalized, wooden boxes can be decorative or utilitarian. If you're new to making wooden boxes, start by crafting a wooden box with either a hinged or sliding lid before trying out more advanced techniques


Smoothly sanded boxes with brass-tone hinges and closures, unfinished, ready to paint or decorate as desired. Made of 3/8" thick pine with nicely rabbeted and glued joints. Dimensions given below are for the outside. (Subtract 3/8" from all sides for inside dimensions.) Photo Frame Box — This hinged box features a photo frame lid that holds a 3-1/2" × 5" picture.


Measure and mark your boards. First, you'll need to decide on the size of your box. Specifically, you'll want to determine how long, wide, and tall to make your box. Keep in mind you'll need to take grooves into account and the fact that your lid will need to be narrower in order to slide into them. Then, mark the measurements on your boards using a ruler and pencil. If you're building a box for a specific purpose or to hold a certain item, measure the item to ensure it will fit inside your finished box.


Choose your wood. You can use repurposed wood from previous projects, boards from broken down pallets, or you can purchase and cut new wood. Consider what your box will be used for. For example, if you're making a jewelry box, consider thin pieces of cedar, ash or oak. It will be easier to make a smaller box with thinner wood. Save larger pieces or boards for bigger boxes. This will also prevent you from having to do too much trimming.


Cut the front side of your box. First, take one of the sides that you've already cut a groove into and measure from the top, where the lid will be, to the bottom of the groove you cut. Use the same distance to cut a straight horizontal line across the top of your box front. After this point, you should be able to test sliding the lid into the grooves and over the front if you clamp the sides together.


Cut the groove for the lid. If you want your lid to be flush with the sides of the box, use a saw to cut a groove along all the sides of the lid but the front. Slide the lid into the groves and over the top of the box. For example, if your side grooves were cut 1/8" from the top and 1/8" deep, you'll want to cut the top edges of your lid 1/8" down from the sides.


Assemble the side pieces using a butt joint. Make sure the grooves are facing inward. Join the sides together at a right angle using glue between the joints for durability. At this point, it should look like a square with no base or lid attached yet. Next, hammer or drill in finishing nails, wood screws or dowels. You may want to use clamps to hold the glued sides together while you drill nails or screws into them. If you're using dowels, drill a hole through the side of one piece into the side of another. Use a wooden dowel to pin the pieces together in an "L" shape. After the sides are pinned, cut the dowel flush with the sides.

Cut your boards, if not already to size. Use a hand or circular saw to cut the boards according to your measurements. Remember you'll need four boards for the sides, one for the base, and one for your lid. Power tools can make the job easier, but are not necessary. You can easily make your box using a screwdriver, carpenter's square, hand saw, and hammer.


Secure the sides to the base. Make sure the sides sit evenly on the base or are snug around the base, depending on your design. Use glue to attach the base and sides. Hammer or drill in finishing nails, wood screws, or dowels. Allow your box to dry thoroughly before sealing or using it.
