I just spend a couple of months figuring out how to cut box joints on a compound miter, so can really appreciate this. Your method is the same as Tage Frid, did you use his book as a starting point?

I have done it before. Just wondering why you did it backwards? Everyone knows tails first. Just ask Roy ;-)) Isn’t he our hero?

wb8nbs- Yes i did use Tage Frig as a starting point. Great book!TopamaxSurvivor- I was taught Pins first from my friend Frank Klausz. Plus when working with my editor Tom Casper, he tryed to find a way to do it tails first. (that’s how he does dovetails) But he couldn’t make it work. Trust me, there was a lot of trial and error Tom and i did to make this work.GarageWorks- try aspirin. I used a lot of it working on this one:-)

I’m sure I did the tails first, but I’m not sure I could tell anyone else how to do it ;-)) When I go to that line that goes off at about a 45, I couldn’t believe it!! That is where it has to be, it worked ;-)
