Old Fashioned Wall Box
      This project comes from Marilyn's dad Frank who actually built it many years ago. I have no idea where he got the plans but it's a simple and nice looking design.
Old Fashioned Wall Box

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1" X 10" X 24" Pine
  • 3/4" X 12" X 10" Pine
  • Glue
  • Stain
  • Varnish
Trace and cut out the back from 1" Pine using the pattern from our web site
Cut out the sides from 1" Pine, 5" X 4 1/2".
Cut out the front from 3/4" Pine 11" X 4 1/2".
Cut the bottom from 3/4" pine to fit tightly inside of the box. The dimensions should be approximately 9 1/2" X 4 1/4". Glue and nail it together with the sides to the outside of the back, flush to the back and flush to the bottom.
Glue and nail the front to the front of the sides.
Nail and glue the bottom flush to the bottom of the back, sides and front.
