Curly Maple and Walnut Box

  1. Matt, can you post the other dimensions of the sides,bottom and top? When you cut out the outside corners of the box did you use a straight but and just made a cut that way?

    1. Sides: 3 11/16″ x 1 5/16″; Bottom: 3 11/16″ square; Top: 3 15/16″ square. The corners were cut with a straight bit (I used a 1/2″ spiral bit) 1/16″ square
