A quick project for my fiance to put the remote and mouse in. The box joints are center keyed so that you don’t have to calculate your dado stack size or width of your board to get even joints on both the top and the bottom. To achieve you start your joint on the jog like normal but before you hit the halfway mark you turn it around and start from the other side. Same thing with the joining sides. Then take your chisel and coping saw and cut out the waste in your side piece. Kind of confusing but I will post a youtube video shortly. I cut the curve with the bandsaw and then sanded to the line with the spindle sander. The finger holes were drilled with a forsner bit. I was careful not to go all the way and switched sides half way through to avoid tear out. I then taped the holes with a round over bit. The bottom was made by cutting a rabbet and gluing slats of walnut. Thanks for looking!

Nice shape and corner joints. My favourite combination of woods, walnut and maple.
