Joe:
Nicely done I am still struggling with my Incra to make nice dovetails
Have you had trouble with the right angle fixture? Mine seems to jump from time to time even if I tighten it up with the nylon set screws.
any help is appreciated.

This weekend was my first time to use it. By jumping, do mean that it moves forward to fast or do you mean that it does not stay at a right angle. Incra has some good technical support, I suggest you email or call them. I talked to their technical support guy and he was lots of help when I had a question one time.

Nice, very elegant! I love the contrasting woods! Is Incra the place where you buy your wood?

Very nice box! I really like to dark and lighter color wood choices. That chamfered box top edge looks first rate as well.

Which Incra jig you have? I have an Incra Jig Ultra (older one), and have no problem with jumping.

As small advice: make sure the horiz. fixture is firmly down on the table top and the point where it meets the fence at the base. Also be sure there are no chips in the way. Good dust collection helps. Does it jump when you do dry runs with the power off and no bit installed? Waxing things up for good glide might help.
Also; I highly recommend getting the videos they offer. Makes perfect sense of it all after watching a few times. Keep at it and it will seem easy after a while.

Glenn, incra is a precise system for the router table, check it out at incra.com and/or look at my shop photos under my projects

Scott I guess you are saying to put spaces in title or make it shorter. I am not sure.

Spaces would be good.. :)

Sorry, just the webdev coming out in me.. Though, the solution I would do would be a server side character limit and auto space inspection code snip.

Regardless.. Nice box.. :)
