Woodsmith Scalloped-Lid Box Standard Plan & Premium Shop Drawings

WOODSMITH-SCALLOPED-LID-BOX-PLANS-GROUP

The first thing most people notice about this box is the distinctive lid panel. It appears to be hand carved from a solid blank. But it’s actually the product of several glued-up strips that are shaped before assembly. Most of the shaping takes place at the router table. Moving past the stylish lid, the next unexpected thing you’ll notice is that there doesn’t appear to be any way to open it. The lid is slightly recessed within the framework of the box and looks to be “floating” in the opening with no visible handle or hinges. A light push on the front of the lid activates a spring-loaded latch inside. A pair of hidden hinge pins recessed in the box sides and lid complete the illusion.

You can purchase the Woodsmith Scalloped-Lid Box standard plan or the supplemental premium shop drawings as a downloadable PDF or in a printed format that we ship to you. We highly recommend purchasing both the standard plan and the supplemental premium shop drawings for more in-depth instructions and greater detail.
