Thanks for the web album. I plan to make one of these soon and will definitely be referring back to this project.

I did not see Norm’s version of this. I think I saw this over on Fine Woodworking, but really do not remember.

Just wanted to set the record straight, that it’s not original to me.

Glad y’all liked it.

Now I just have to figure out how to make real boxes with it.

I’ve made box joints using a dado set but they didn’t come out as nice. I guess it pays to have the right tool!

Very nice… How did you like the Box cutter blade? May I suggest that you post a review of it?
