Probably lots of different ways to do it but this is how I do it:

 

1. Find an existing box that is near to what you want in the tempates directory.

2. Copy it and rename it to whatever you want. box.mynewbox.php for example.

3. Edit main.php for the skin and put {include file='templates/box/mynewbox.php'} where you want the box to appear making sure it's within the sidebar class div wrapper.

 

After that it's just a matter of editing the box.mynewbox.php to make it appear as you want creating new classes within common.css as required.
