Jewelry Box

DovetailBox09

This box requires no glue. The sides connect with dovetail joints, the top attaches to the back with hinges, and the sides fit neatly onto the base.

Print out two sides, one base, one front, one back, one top, and two pins, and you’re good to go. If the pins are too breakable (it can be hard to shove them in the hinge holes), you can use an unfolded paper clip instead. (Low tech, but it works!)

If you want to learn how to create this model yourself, the steps are shown in Chapter 5 of the book Modeling in SketchUp for 3D Printing.

Once you know how to model the pieces, you can replace the text on the front of the box with something else. Or you can import just the front piece into SketchUp, erase the text, and start fresh.
