Mini chest

Working with reclaimed lumber I usually have created bigger items but I got an idea to create something smaller and a little faster.

Starting out with a nice reclaimed board like this one that needs a little cleaning up.

On the table saw I cut it to length. And a rough sanding.

For creating a lid I set the table saw to have a 17 degree angle and cut 1 inch strips.

I used painters tape to line up and glue the steps together and form the lid.

Leaving the lid to set over night everything had lined up pretty good and only need a little glue removal and sanding.

I added a couple of blocks to finish the lid. Attached it to a same size box with Hinges and finished it with a couple of oil treatments.

Yes this will fit a bottle of wine 😃
