Building a jewelry box / small chest from scratch
I do not have too much wood work experience however I do take on a lot of projects involving constructing things. I was curious to get some advice or tips on making something along the lines of the image below. I think the lid will be the most challenging to shape with its angled beveled edges..I do not have a table saw either so I will have to use hand saws, sand paper....the basics. The most I have is a dremel with some bits.
Looking for ways to approach it, what type of wood you think I would be best with, the size will be about 3.75"x6"x3.75". Also I plan to make it weathered and appear worn out and aged. The lid like I said will likely be the biggest challenge getting the shape correct. I initially planned to use small nails and wood glue for assembly given my limited amount of access to tools.
