This was a good weekend project. I decided to build a box mount for my dovetail jig. The box not only raises the jig up from the workbench so its easier to use, but it also allows me to easily clamp it to the bench.
I made the box from scrap poplar. Of course I dovetailed the top board to the sides, and used a dado to attach the sides to the base. I left ears on the bottom sides so I can clamp it to the bench. The box has a door on the backside. For hinges, I used some scrap piano hinges. The inside of the box can be used for storage of dovetail jig parts. I bolted the jig to the top of the box and put some handles on the sides so it can be easily carried.
