I am getting ready to build a small log cabin doll house. I am wanting to use box joint construction on the corners
but they are going to need to be about 3/4” wide by 1’ high. wanting other input as to the best way to remove this much wood. Thanks

Hi BigRich!

WOW! Those will be BIG box joints!
edit: are you going to have your ends purposely sticking out longer… to make it look like Log Ends?

I take it you want to use a Router? (that’s what I would use) But, maybe you want to use a TS… (Which is it?)

OK, here is what I would do:

Layout & Mark all of the Box joints as accurately as you can with a pencil.
Be sure to “X” mark the Waste areas.

Hold the pieces up to each other to be sure your lines are accurate, etc.

I would go to the Band Saw:

Staying about 1/8” (or so… not any closer) from the lines IN THE WASTE AREAS…

Cut into the Waste areas... down each side… then diagonally, etc. until you have most of it gone.

THEN, go about cutting the Box Joints the way you want to do it…
You should be only cutting a 1/4” max of material at a time… easily routed/cut in one pass.

Be sure to use Backer boards to prevent tearout.

Does that help?

Be sure to let us know what it looks like when you’re done… OK?

Thank you for asking!
