    I assume the height of 4 cm includes the cover
    outside box is 6 x 5 x 4
    inside it is 4 x 3 x 2

    volume outside = 120
    volume inside = 24 (b)
    so volume wood = 120 - 24 = 96 (a)

    length = 4
    width = 3
    depth = 2 -1 for cover = 1
    so area bottom inside = 4*3 = 12
    area sides = 2*4*1 = 8
    area ends = 2 *3 * 1 = 6
    so
    12 + 8 + 6 = 26
