Adapted from an 1840s piece, this canted wall box is scaled up from the one you’ll find in John A. & Joyce C. Nelson’s “The Big Book of Weekend Woodworking” (Lark). Making it just a wee bit bigger allowed me to make use of 1/2″ x 6″ poplar (which is actually only 5-1/2″ wide) without having to make any rip cuts.
