Does Anyone do these on a regular basis? Do you use a hollow chisal mortiser or just all hand tools.

Wow. I have never (and likely will never ;-p) made anything remotely like that. I’m not even sure I could get it put together let alone cut. I’ll be following to see what others have to say because I’m very curious!

Get started with Japanese joinery….. Appears they show the same exact joint.

Rat cheer.

Life it too short too spend it on a joint I’ll never use.

If I really wanted to make similar (meaning 3 way 45 the would be strong enough) I’d cut the 45’s and use the Festool domino.

Yeah, I suppose I’m getting lazy in my old age.

That’s the kind of joint that causes the F word to fly out of my mouth just before I throw it into the pile of doomed projects.
Good grief what a over complicated mess.

Good Luck

I bet it sure is pleasing if and when that joint comes together perfectly. Like nearly a godly moment.

I agree with AlskaGuy. Time is short. I could make three boxes in the time it would take me to screw this thing up.

Well done Pontic! How did you go about it? Hand or power tools?

Definitely need a double track marking gage. I use a veritas wheel cutter type. Mortice machine helps to for the cheek cuts. A very very sharp 1/4 and 1/8 chisel se. I use Japanese hand saws and a chop saw. The pieces must be exactly square and equal. Not easy at all.
Never make one unless I’m paid a lot for it.
