This card box is made from real wood, and is sure to capture the imagination of your guests. The log section was trimmed up and hollowed on a bandsaw. A swivel lid allows access to inside the log, and with a strategically placed magnet the lid will register back in place. Here’s a full build video showing how I made it: At a glance this looks like a heavy solid log, but with the bulk of the insides removed this box has a manageable weight. After your event this storage box can have the lid removed and placed in your garden as a fun plant container. Ready to make an amazing log card box for your next event? Let’s make!

  • A largish section of log (shown roughly 18″ (46cm) tall, and 13″ (33cm) in diameter)
  • Bandsaw
