this was my first attempt at a splined box. I was very happy with how it turned out, although i originally intended it to be a bit bigger. oak and maple finished with wipe on poly. pagoda style top was a bit of a challenge, but i think it worked out ok. many thanks to Don for the great blog on spline jigs, it was a super easy design and very functional!

Nice job! I think splines dress up a box as well as add strength to the corners.

Congrats on your first spline box. I’ve only made one so far, but hope to make more in the very near future.
