These are two small boxes made with the help of Incra’s Ultra lite dovetail jig.
I have been making lots of sawdust and only these two boxes remain.
I’ve learned a lot and owe much of my learning progress to internet friends who guided me thru the process.

The INCRA jig is next on the wish list. I almost bought the whole set up but went for the overhead router table instead..
I believe you have made a distinguished start to box making with the jig.
Two equally fine boxes.
Make more sawdust and have fun,
