    Cherry Trinket Box

    This is a small trinket box made from Cherry. I made this box at www.techshop.ws in Chandler, AZ. This is a little larger than the plans called for, however it is still a small box and simple to make. It consists of two sides, two ends, a bottom, a lid, and a lid keeper. You can keep a variety of items in this box. Anything from your jewelry, to possibly several decks of playing cards.

    You might be wondering if glue and butt joints are going to be strong enough to hold this box together. And in a word, "Yes". The glue will be forced into the pores of the wood when you clamp everything together, making a relatively strong joint for a small box.

    This box is also small enough for you to use really nice wood without breaking the bank. Personally, I let my wife choose the wood she wanted and she chose 1/4" Cherry. In my opinion, she made an excellent choice.
