I built this box as a first run project for the Incra Ibox jig my wife bought me for our anniversary. This jig is awesome. But nothing compares to the first project that I built with my boys. Mason my 8 year old helped cutting mortises for the bread board ends. Carter by 6 year old helped with the sanding, they both helped with layout. They both loved wearing “Gas Masks”. The process was great, for all power tool activities they had specific standing areas, they both had a great time and listened well. The box is a present for Masons 8th Birthday. I found that the hollow chisel mortiser is a good first power tool as you can pull slow and it is very predictable. Many years before they use the table saw, but it was a wonderful experience for all and they are both very proud. Design would be called Easy Greene and Greene. The primary wood is Black Walnut from a tree that was removed from our back yard, the bread board ends are blood wood. The bottom of the box is Baltic birch ply. Thanks for looking, this is a great past time and passion, and Lumber jocks is a great site.
