True dat!

Boxes are a great way to develop joinery skills without dealing with large pieces of $$$ wood. Options are virtually unlimited.

(love the DT splines!)

Nice work.
I like the integrated hinge. I have been toying with how to use my Panto Router machine to make those.

Beautiful boxes. Now did you use a finger joint jig, then route the edge and drill for a pin, to create the hinge?

That's the process. The longest I've been able to make is 7", drilling from each end.


Anything longer and the drill bit wonders too much. I use an extra long 1/8" bit and the pin is brazing rod cut to length.

Thanks for sharing. And yes it is difficult to drill a long length without drifting off center. Even if you use a press in a horizontal position.

Well worth the effort thought.

Joe, nice boxes. The dovetail spline is pretty cool.

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…

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.

These are great. I want to get into building boxes. Right after I get my shop perfect. ;)

But seriously, these are beautiful.
