  1. Box Jointed Birdhouse

    Solid Maple birdhouse made with box joints on all four sides. The rusted roof was cut from an old fifty gallon drum. The perch was taken off the end of an old butcher's steel. This birdhouse needs some vents in the back and a way to open it for cleaning. This was more of an experiment using...
  2. Serving Tray

    I designed and built this serving tray as a wedding gift for a co-worker and his lovely bride. Built from birds eye maple and black walnut. Box joinery holds it all together and the handles have black walnut on the bottom and two sides. Finished with several coats of shellac and polyurethane...
  3. Vanity Base

    I was commissioned to build this piece for some friends who were remodeling their master bath. It's made of red oak and finished with Minwax oil-based Classic Oak and Sedona Red. It was designed in AutoCAD around the vanity purchased at Ikea. The grate shelf fit together very snugly with the...
  4. Cherry box

    I built a new box joint jig and this was my first project using that jig. The box is solid Cherry except for the 1/4" MDF bottom that is in a rabbeted groove. It is finished using General Finishes Cinnamon dye then sealed with a 2lb cut of shellac. After a light sanding, I applied several coats...
  5. Two Stepper

    Based on a project in an issue of Woodwork Magazine. The magazine version had half-blind dovetails, but I went with pinned box joints (that's what I call 'em anyway). That joint fits my skill level better. The stretcher is m&t into the sides. I made it out of Ash. It came out pretty well...
  6. Core Sample display boxes

    My father requested I make these for his mining company so they are able to display the core samples from his mining companies latest property. They are constructed out of Red Oak and the corners are joined using a box joint to resemble the old dynamite boxes. The hardest part of the project was...
  7. Simple Tissue Boxes

    Plenty of the smaller tissue boxes showing up here on the LJ, I though I'd give it a go with some scraps! The bases are finger jointed walnut and white oak, the top is from my dwindling stash of apricot. I had expected more contrast between the oak and walnut after finishing, oh well 8^) It...
  8. Tool Tote

    Holiday gift made from reclaimed wood. Handle was from a dowel I had lying around. I used a scrap of the pine from the tote for the box joint size. I have a jig for a small size joint but didn't think it would look right and I didn't feel like making another jig to have hanging around. So a...
  9. Doll chest

    This is a doll chest that i built for my 9 year old daughter's birthday. It holds her two American girl dolls. I now have built something for three of my children and have three more to go. This doll chest does have a couple secret compartments. One drawer has a false bottom. The shelf on the...
  10. Drill Press and Planer Cart

    I have finished my new Roll-around Cart for my Drill Press and Planer. It is solid as a rock, and I finished it in record time (for me), and with very few mistakes. The case is 3/4 plywood (mostly so-called "cabinet" grade from the big box store) on 3" casters. Finish is oil primer followed...
  11. Kitchen Projects

    A few small items for the kitchen that I have made over the years, not worthy of each having their own posting. First is a simple banana holder. We have been using it for years, and it works well. Pattern is from the web site...
  12. Kitchen Light

    While remodeling our house our kitchen needed a new light fixture. I wasn't happy with any of the commercially available ones so I decided to make my own. I started with a 4', 4 tube drop in light fixture. Wrapped it in red oak and box jointed the corners. Added a small bead detail around...
  13. Lego table for my son

    My six year old son asked me to build him a table for his legos (not out of legos). He specifically wanted me to affix the baseplate that you see in the photos to the top of the table. I took the opportunity to get both of my kids involved in the build. My son helped with the wood selection and...
  14. Tool chest ? ....

    The chest is made out of cedar, salvaged from an old corner cabinet disassembled 20 years ago when we moved to our current house. Fortunately I kept the lumber in the attic for all this time. I have been researching for a tool chest since a couple of months ago. (I don´t know why surfing the...
  15. Harmonica box with mini wood hinges

    This spalted mystery wood (maple?) was found on the bottom of a pallet. There wasn't much of the wood with the splated look, but I had the perfect small project for it. A little box. The sappy part of the story: Years ago my grandfather gave me a harmonica that belonged to his father. Not...
  16. Adjustable Box Joint Jig

    Adjustable box joint jig built from oak. This is the jig as found in Shop Notes magazine from sometime ago. Built this to enable me to build 12x draws for some shop storage units, another project in progress. Now the jig is built I can do the drawers! It has adjustments that enable you to...
  17. box joint jig

    This is my first attempt at a box joint jig. So far it has worked nicely. Only thing i would do different is make the fence taller for support and as a means to get my fingers further from the bit. I think i am going to remedy this by adding a t-slot to the fence with a toggle clamp to hold...
  18. Easy Box Joints

    While working on a way to cut box joint type fingers, I came up with the following idea to make Box Joints using my 5 min Kerf Maker and my sled. When doing woodwork and also in general I try to keep to the KIS principle (Keep It Simple!!!!) With my Box Joint Jigs I have broken this principle...
  19. Sofa arm table

    First post since ever, every day I have a look to all your making. So here's my turn, this sofa arm is from reclaimed floor that has been damaged by water after fire. First try at box joint and I rounded all edges. Finish is two coat of wipe on poly.
  20. Kerfmaker Style Box Joint Jig

    I have a Triton Workcentre, which imposes a few constraints on me. One of those is that the clearance for my blade is fixed, and while it is wider than a zero clearance, it is too narrow to install a dado balde in my saw. That meant that making box joints on my saw was a problem. But a while...
