The proverbial heart-shaped box — I think almost anyone who has attempted woodworking has cranked one of these bad boys out at one time or another. This one is the handywork of long-time reader Beano_T.
For those of you who have never put one together, there are two ways to go about it. Cut the shape and hollow it out and do the same for the lid, or cut the box, cut it in half, and cut the sides out of flat stock and glue it all up.
Either way, we hope whoever is the recipient appreciates the time that went into it, mostly because these little rigs take more time than they look like they might.
See how I avoided all the Kurt Cobain jokes on this one?
