Nic, this is a well-designed box. The purple and yellow heart accents along with the edge detail add visual interest to the lid of the box. And the corner dovetails add a nice contrast to the maple. I am sure this was well received by the newlyweds.

Great looking box. I enjoy the design on the top with the edge detail and colors. I’m sure it will be in the family for a long time.

I dont think that you can make the posts with a standard dovetail jig. I recently picked up the Incra Ultra Fence( http://www.incra.com/product_rtf_main.htm ) for my new router table i built. It was fairly easy for setup and the fence is absolutely awesome for the precision it gives you. It comes with templates for about 100 different type of joints. the corner post is one of them. Here is a link to youtube to give you the basic idea of what the fence is capable of. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2R8_qa90CQ0&feature=PlayList&p=6AF3A7D29651D94B&index=1

I can give you more detailed directions, but i dont think it can be done without the precision and templates of this fence.

Sweet – that is an impressive tool – as well as your results.
