Well, the box is finished. It was a long road for a small box, 25cm x 20cm. Yet I am proud to say that I never used any power tools on this box; nothing but hand tools. I guess this wood saw some type of power back when it was milled in the mid...

I am a retired US Army First Sergeant. I retired in NOV 2013 after almost 23 years of active duty. Took a little break from woodworking after building a man cave in my basement and my workshop's beckoning is getting louder by the day. Currently, I work as a supervisor at a local foundry. Great job, I really like it.
I am primarily a hand tool user. I simply don't have the room for a power tool shop nor do I have the want for the noise and mess. So I stick to the hand tools and the couple of smaller power tools I have.
I am always looking for information, opinions, and ideas. It is a great hobby filled with alot of methods.

Another productive day. I got the top and bottom finished up, cut the remaining eight grooves (a total of 11 in the whole box), and made the splines for the mitered corners. First up, top and bottom. I made the bottom piece by edge gluing two...
Ok, so next day, and another one closer to completion. I got a lot done today. I put the edge treatment on what will be the top edge of the box, cut the sides to length, cut the top and bottom pieces, and made corner blocks that I will use when ...
I spent the day making final preparations to the boards to begin making the box. I did final cleaning up, jointing, face planing, and cutting rabbets. I decided to use Roy Underhill’s 11 groove box that I saw him do on one of his latest sh...
