Hello everybody,

This week I cut our front, back, and two sides of my box. That means that I am done cutting all of the pieces. I also had to sand them because they had tons of splinters on them. I was not able to sand the top and bottom of my box but I did the rest. My box is looking pretty good but the pieces aren’t all exactly the same size so I might need to sand it a little more so the pieces all fir together nicely. In order to sand the box we used a belt sander. It is a automatic sander where you need to touch your pieces to the rough sand paper as it is moving, and it will sand the piece of wood and make it perfectly smooth. it was much easier to do than I thought and it took a very short amount of time.

This is a picture of all of the sanded pieces assembled in a box shape:
