« Part 1: The Boards Part 2 of Ambrosia-birdseye maple series Part 3: Bottom Detail »

So here is the next phase in the early life of a box.

After straight lining one of the boards and cutting to a rough length for my project, I split the board in half. I usually go for 3/8 or a little larger but since these boards were already surfaced I couldn’t make them thicker. LOL. I ended up a little proud of 5/16 thick. I know a lot of people make there boxes 3/4 thick but this way works better for me. I will add to the interior once the lid is sized and everything is together. Trust me. It sounds wacked but as I said, it works for me.

After splitting the board and planing, I pull out the old miter sled and set the table saw to 45 degrees and cut the pieces to size. Set stop is designing and cutting the bottom detail. I’ll post once I get it done.

Thanks for following along on this journey.

It’s not a very good picture, but I am sure you get the idea.
