« Part 16: Making some ash inserts Part 17 of Shop stuff series Part 18: I made a mistake »

I did some experimenting on cutting the ends of box joints flush with the sides. The last box I just used the Random Orbital sander to get them flush. I finally figured it out after a while and got to the point where I could slice the tops off the box.

I have used a flush trim router bit in my router table to level proud box joints in a hurry. A stationary belt sander also works well IF you have a long enough platen and your table is 90 degrees to the platen.

Thanks for the suggestion. I am trying out hand tool methods more and more, and this was part of the experiment.
