DIY Wooden Centerpiece Box

This diy wooden box can be made simple or advanced carpentry if you desire. We used no nails and wood glue to hold the frame together. For wood we chose some scrapes from other projects. You could also use walnut, maple, oak, ect...For more advanced carpentry you could dovetail or kraig jig your corners.
Here we are gluing the corners together. You will need clamps to hold it securely overnight.

Dimensions were 5ft long, 3inches long, and 9inches wide.
which still gave room to set plates on the table without removing the box.

The story of the wooden box...One morning our sweet neighbor was walking home with a large piece of wood that she salvaged from her journey. We asked her as she passed if she would like help carrying the lumber home...and she told us about a box she would love to have for her table. We helped her build the box and she sanded, finished, and decorated the centerpiece. So when seasons change she will send me a photo and I will share it with busy days!
