« Part 2: Preparing The Stock Part 3 of Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift series Part 4: Building The Lid »

For the first real project in my shop, my brother and I purchased an Incra Finger Joint Jig and a cheap dado stack from Home Depot. It did the job but my table saw isn’t made to use a stacked blade. Ignoring the warnings… I used the stack at 1/4” which allowed me to just get the nut on to hold it in place. It worked just fine for the previous project and figured I would just rinse and repeat the steps from before.

I cut a bottom plate for the bottom of the box and 1cm by 1cm kickers to place under said bottom. I just liked the look of it and it was fairly easy to do. After cutting the finger joints and doing some glue up, I ended up with a decent looking box like thing! Progress is always a good thing… unfortunately the finger joints on 1/2” lumber did leave tear out. Since it’s for the inlaws… and I am in a hurry, I’m not going to worry much about it and keep plugging along. I hated to do it but to speed up my process, I used 1” finish nails in the edges just to help hold it together while gluing and attaching the bottom base. It’s ok though since I kinda like the look it adds.

Below is a shot of the finger joints and the bottom. I think once I finish it with some tung oil, those edges will pop and stand out a little better. That’s my hope at least.

It’s starting to come together!
