According to the catalogs splined joints are the latest thing. I’ve seen jigs going for over $100 in three different catalogs. This really peaves me as you can make a jig from scraps for the cost of four screws. In fact this box was my first attempt with that simple jig and I think the results speak for themselves.
The box is from a resawn piece of canary wood (possibly yellow heart) the splines are 3/32” slices of purpleheart that really appear black.The spline depth was intentionally set to just break thru the inside corners as an internal detail.
Normally we make the boxes with a bottom bead instead of splines. The boxes become a little garish with both.
