Nice simple project!

On future boxes you might want to consider these inserts - depending on where the boxes will sit.  And how moisture tolerant the wood you are using is...

That’s cool . I bet she will hold on to it and never get rid of it. My wife still has the first cabinet I made . It’s got my sons scribbling on it even a stamped happy face on it. My son is 24 now and a US Marine Infantryman
