This simple wooden box looks really expensive and can be the perfect woodworking gift. It takes very little material, but makes the most of it with incredible contrasting woods that will impress anyone who is lucky enough to receive it.
I made this little wood box when I was thinking of fast ways to make gift projects. Woodworkers are always looking for things to make for other people. What I like about this project is that it’s a simple build, not a lot of pieces, but it still looks amazing.
I made the box approximately 4” long x 3” wide and 3” tall. It’s made from wenge and maple. Wenge can be a bit pricey, but this project requires only a tiny amount and another dark wood can be substituted.
