I had a little down time in my shop so I decided to build a dozen of these little boxes. If you look closely you will see heart joints on the corners. I used the Fast Joint System sold by MLCS and Peachtree to make the joints. There is nothing fast about that joint system. It does an okay job at cutting the joints but you have to cut fairly slow to prevent the high speed steel bit that comes with it from flexing too much and leaving too much chatter. Then there is a lot of sanding to do to get rid of the chatter. All twelve boxes found new homes in less than 3 weeks and I have decided to build another 30 of them around Valentines day next year.
