This one is more hand-built but it does have one particularly important laser cut piece, the shipping label lol
Since lockdown started, our amazon spending has increased significantly. Our cats have been loving it. There are boxes everywhere! But they are all gross because they wear them out so fast…we knew we could do better. We set out to make the most artisanal “amazon inspired” boxes we could!
These boxes are made from Red Oak that has been finger-jointed together and a plywood base was added with some glue. The tops are attached with a brass piano hinge and allowed to overextend (like a cardboard box) with the use of a 22.5-degree routed edge on the sides. The inlays were routed out with a top bearing flush-trim bit. We used Alumilite Clear Cast Resin for the inlay colors, used Laser cut acrylic for the packing label, and used circuit cut vinyl for the designs. We oiled them boxes up and let the cats have them.
To our surprise, they have taken to them very well. We put in cardboard inserts as well as crinkle paper to attract them a bit more but overall, they seem to be enjoying them!
We have a video on how we made them here -
Have a spectacular day!
