So first I sanded up the bottom detail using a drum sander on my ancient drill press
next I cut the dado for the bottom to set in. I don’t have a dado blade so I just make multiple passes on the table saw.
After that is done, I move on to sand the inside of the box. Since it is nearly impossible to do after the box is together this is the perfect time to do it.
Now it’s just a little glue and some tape. I have found that with boxes this small tape is more than enough. Trying to use clamps is a exercise in frustration and I don’t think they are needed. As long as you miters are true the box wants to go together on it’s on. I use the tape across the top of the corners to pull it into square if it needs it. and just to hold it there if it doesn’t.
And since it takes just about to the same amount of time to do 9 boxes as it does to do 1, I did 9
Next stop will be lids
Thanks for joining me on this journey, This is a learning experience for me and as with all things, I hope to get better at this blog thing as I go. Until next time happy sawdust making.
