Bill, I think I know how these joints were made, but could you show us a close up of the joint itself and maybe the bit you used to cut them with? Great shape and ideas on these boxes. Keep boxing and keep posting, Cagey.

It is a very nice box and skillful work process.
At first I thought you used different thicknesses of timber until I saw the second picture.

So I have to agree with Big Al, a blog or some construction notes showing the overall process would be well received !!
Good work and thanks for posting!!

Robert, the inspiration for this came from a video that I watched posted by David Henry – take a look at this video and several others that he has been generous enough to post -” http://davidhenrywoodarts.com/videos.html":http://davidhenrywoodarts.com/videos.html
