I have been working on a wooden carpenters style box for a few weeks now. Im trying to stay as close to the metal one im replacing cause of size/weight/ bulky issues. Originaly i wanted to use box joints but was unable with the stacked dadoe set i have. Looked into using router but by time i finally found a easy to make and understand jig i settled for what i know. Used screws w/dowel plugs. Just as well cause the amount of tools i plan on keeping in. Its been a little slow going but a great experiance. I got to use my router table for grooves and rabbets and also as a jointer. A router as a jointer works pretty damn good. Especially if yor like me on a budjet. I havent been in a shop setting since high school and forgot how much fun it can be. I have mostly done framing/concrete work last 15 yrs as carpenter. will post some pics when can. oh yeah its also hard to do things with a 7 1/2 month prego wife. Just imagine whene the boy gets here. LOL

A tight budgit is understandable. Congrats on the upcoming rugrat.
