This is my first project using my new toy, Incra IBox.

I plan on mostly using this on my router table, but it will likely be used on the tablesaw.

I put tape on the pieces as a reminder before routing. It’s easier to get off than pencil marks. This is routing the dadoes for the bottom. 2 are stopped, 2 are through.

I need a reminder to put the dado in the right place.

That’s why there is an oak strip around the base. Maybe I’ll get it right next time. It took a while for me to start liking this piece.

Walnut and oak, 1/4” BB plywood bottom, 7” wide x 7” deep x 5” tall with rattle can poly spray.

That looks nice and the oak; not only being a good save, contrasts nicely.

That’ll look good on any table. I like how you did the opening in the one side to grab the napkin from
