This is my joinery box I created in my woodshop, it’s made of pine with no stain but 3 coats of polyurethane. I’m overall happy with this project it tonight me the art of joining wood without using a nail gun or staples. One problem I encountered was that there were some gaps between joints that may have been my clamp job but wouldn’t count on it probably just a wood defect. But overall it’s a very nice box

looks like a good start, the gaps were either from not being clamped together tightly or your bottom panel was a little over sized not allowing the sides to come together but overall a good effort keep going everyone will get better.

Nice job! Any plans for a lid, or will this be an open box?

Nice project, Nate. Just remember to proofread your post before you click post: “it tonight me the art of joining wood…” I’m guessing you meant “taught”. Autocorrect strikes again!

As pottz said above, the gaps are most likely from your bottom being cut a little too wide and not allowing the wood to come together. The wood shop class demands patience and a daily work ethic. Some projects will have parts that need to be measured, cut, assembled & tested for fit, measured again, disassembled, cut again, tested again for fit, measured, disassembled, cut again, etc. (you get the idea)

The only thing you can do to plan for those steps that take more time than what you originally thought they would is to work hard every day and ask your teacher lots of questions.

Good job buddy, keep it up!
