Hi all,

I really wanted to do something that I haven’t done beforehand in joinery techniques.. So since I designed and built my router table box joint jig, I decided to make the jigs maiden project and designed a box , originally it was going to be a jewelry box but the wife doesn’t need one, I might keep it for myself and use it for a keepsake box.. Until I make a much bigger one…

I got the design here on lumberjocks thanks to Justin , here is a link to his box.. The main difference is that his box is made from 1 species of wood, oak and mine is made from poplar in addition to the oak…

Anyway the dimensions are 10” wide, 5.5” high and 5” deep…..

The box is 100% glue and finger joint and the base a rabbit cut out all along the perimeter of the base to fit inside the the box walls

I finished it with Danish oil and that’s it

I hope you like it

Looks like your off to a good start Ed! I really like how box joints make a very strong joint and add a nice look to your project!
