Draftboard can be beautiful!

Being shut in is the perfect time to make presents! I had a lot of draftboard and veneer so I decided to make a Boating Party Box. 8.25" square x 4.5 H. Had the blank flasks and shot glasses lying around so I thought it would be a good way to “present” them. Used the settings I found on here for the shot glasses and iPhone settings for the flask. The veneer was a PITA and had to run the pieces a couple of times even though I know I measured correctly. Yes, some of the seams on the veneer are off, but I am ok with it. The holder for the pieces comes out and you can use the box for something else.

Just used a piece of medium PG Acrylic for the top with blue paper behind it for the compass rose.

All-in-all was a really fun project to design and tons of math for the holder. LOL Took about 2 days to design and the box took about 3.5 hours to run with the engraving.

Happy Sunday Everyone!
