Having recently finished building my new boxjoint jig, I was dying to make something with it. So I ended up making a gift, for my best friends son Daniel.
Im really impressed how tight the joints are on that jig. Dry assembly is like wood-porn when everything just fits!
Pretty Straight-forward really. I ripped a few rafter cutoffs, and glued them back together for the actual box.
Keeping glue-preasure on the rounded lid was quite a challenge, and I would appreciate any feedback on doing so easier than I did. I ended up using heavy rocks, and a nailgun through the extra lenght, I could cut off later. It was a mess!
Finished it with some teakstained oil, and painted the insides black. I also glued some of that red felt in the bottom.
For the heck of it, I also made some goldbars and dubloons out of scraps. Yaaar booty be mine!
Total build time was aprox 2 days.
Hope I can inspire someone to bring a little joy to someone else.
Have a good one
