Building on the success of my pencil box, I wanted to see whether the cedar planks could be edge-glued. After cutting off the tongues and grooves of several planks, I managed to edge glue them together and keep them flat. If there are clamps designed to edge glue 1/4 inch stock and maintain them flat, I don’t have any so this part was a bit challenging.
After that, though, it was back to the box generator web site and a few minutes on the Glowforge. Because these were glued and I needed to remove the squeeze-out, the box is finished better on both sides than the last one. But, apart from sanding to 600 grit, it’s just paste-waxed with no other finish.
The box is sized to hold my Wood Identification Database - a stack of labeled veneers of all the species I was able to find from Ash to Zebrawood. The veneers would be a great Glowforge cutting project if I didn’t need them for identifying wood.
Added a shot with a square for scale.
