Box can be made from any available material i.e. wooden boards, MDF or plywood.
I had some MDF sheets in my scrap container so I've build simple frame from narrow panels of 1/2" MDF.
Before joining pieces together I've applied some carpenter's glue to matching surfaces. Glue fills gaps and add extra strength to joint.
All parts fastened with 1" wooden screws. To avoid material splitting I've drilled 1/8" pilot holes for screws and made countersinks.
Front and back panels are made from 1/4" MDF and attached to frame with glue and screws. Wooden putty can be applied over top of screw heads to make surface even and smooth.
|It's a good habit to keep scrap material just in case.|
