Small Tongue And Groove Gift Box PLAN


SKU: Small Tongue And Groove Gift Box PLAN Category:




To see this box being built CLICK HERE. This small gift box build was made for a wedding gift for a relative. The design is inspired by my tongue and groove blanket chest with a slight Asian flair. Materials cost to build this blanket chest where I live is about $60 with using walnut and sapele. Every piece of this project was cut from 1″ rough sawn lumber. The frame assemblies are made with tongue and groove joints with floating panels. Material can be resawn for solid wood panels in the frames or you can use plywood. The main assembly joinery can be either floating tenons, dowels, or biscuits. The interior tray is dovetailed but you can build it however you want. There is a lot of flexibility with the project allowing you to complete it with the joinery you choose. The overall size is 8″ high, about 8″ front to back, and about 14″ left to right. The plans are in imperial units only at this time. The following is included in the plan:

  • 14 detailed pages
  • shopping list
  • helpful links
  • access to download the SketchUp file used to create the plan
  • a rough lumber layout diagram
  • reference diagrams for specific part and assembly dimensions
  • step by step 3D assembly diagrams with written instructions
