Boxes are a true test of my joinery skills (or lack of), there's always enough scrap in the bin to build a box.
That's the process. The longest I've been able to make is 7", drilling from each end.Beautiful boxes. Now did you use a finger joint jig, then route the edge and drill for a pin, to create the hinge?
That was a thought I had as well, just haven't used it on a project yet. I was thinking of a longer box/chest with just the hinge incorporated at the ends. You've given me food for thought. As a side note the Teak was in fact stained then painted Ipe decking. I needed to change the blades in my planer anyway.If you want it longer, why not just finger joint and drill the ends, leave the center without joints or being drilled?
Think that could work…IMHO…
