Just getting started in woodworking so various attempts at boxes with finger joints and miters. Still lot to learn but fun projects to give away to family.

Good attempt at boxes. I would suggest you work on thinning the wall thickness.

The nice aspect of making a box is how “doable” it is…not too much wood…not so much time. Plus have a chance to try out new techniques (and for someone like me who has owned a table saw for less than a year there is much to learn!). So, yes…guess I have been bitten by the box bug!! :)

Great job bud!

-- If you want it to take longer and cost more, get into woodworking. It's worth every second and every penny because nothing, is more rewarding than creating something with your own two hands.
