This is a box I made for my son Ryan. It is made of hard maple and a little bit of walnut. It is my first attempt
at box joints. I bought a jig for cutting box joints but it caused too much tear out. So I made a jig from things
I had around my shop which worked much better. The good thing is I only spent about $25 on the
The bottom floats in a dado while the top is glued into a rabbet. The walnut plugs were added when I
realized that at least some of the rabbet and dado cuts should have been stopped. I was pretty disappointed
when I noticed that I could see right through the box.
The box is finished with two coats of polyurethane.
