This box is inspired by a similar design bought at a hobby store. My Sister-in-law sent me the picture, of the box she bought for $10 (last picture).It's made out of pine, 4×5x14 are the approximate dimensions. I used 1/4 birch plywood for the base of the box set in 1/2 inch in from the bottom of the rails. Dark walnut stain, and 2 coats of polyurethane.Each box has 3 jars for my nieces and nephew to save money, spend money, and give money to their church or donation. The jars are wide mouth Mason type jars.I don't know the exact naming of the jointery i used, bit it was not actual straight up edge to edge box joints. I used a dado on the edges of the same depth of the sides. Everything is glued and nailed, ans the birch plywood base is floating in the rails similar to a drawer.
