Much thanks to many of the LJ who provided suggestions to help me deal with some tear out on the box’s finger joints. As seen in the final pic, the joints are not as clean as I would wish but will be ok for this project (and lesson learned on needing a backer board). The trash holder (to hold a plastic container with a lid) used up the last of that plank of myrtlewood. Rounded the edges to try to deal with some of the tear out. Then attached a tissue box holder that consumed my final piece of myrtlewood. Was a bit tight on the top of the tissue box holder so ended up edging it with some scrap pieces of walnut. In the end, I like the needed edging as the walnut seems to pull out the darker colors in the myrtlewood. This was all constructed to fit on the little platform between the front seats of our RV. Now we have a spot for trash and tissues that won’t slid around.

This shows some of the issue I had with the tearout.

Yep, the backer board will help a ton … I wonder if this was table saw cut or router table cut … I find that a spiral bit in the router table cuts a pretty fine finger, ... using a backer of course.
you know that no one else will ever see our mistakes, only the beauty of the wood and your creativeness.

I used my table saw. I had the backer board set for pieces I used to refamilarize myself with my Incra iBox but got ahead of myself and didn’t readjust for my project pieces. Haven’t tried using my router table for finger joints (yet…).
