  1. EZ String Box

    Not a bad first effort. I had this project sitting around the shop for two years and finally got around to cutting it up. Just a basic string box with a modified EX Miter technique. Most of the lines that don't quite line up are due more to the initial glue up than the offset due to the kerf...
  2. Double Cross (A String Box)

    I'll never go back to splines again. Well, maybe not ever. Its been over 900 days and over 20,700 views since I first posted Introducing the String Box and its related blog Secrets of the String Box Revealed. Time flies. Double Cross is the latest in the series, at least until I post Triple...

My question is, with a plywood base and hardwood fence, should I put a finish on the sled to minimize wood movement and ensure squareness to the blade and...

    Intro and Invitation This summer's projects have been boxes. Lots and lots of boxes. Somewhere along the way I got the idea of combining the wrapping technique with a simple inlay to see how hard it would be to align the lines all around the box. In other words, at the corners. Turns out it...

    Just add Soss In two recent projects, the Copper Patina box and the String Box II, I installed Soss hinges. I had once thought of a way to adapt a regular square hinge jig to make routing the mortises for the Soss hinge easier. It turns out, with this jig, it is very easy, and fast, and...
