The one in front is a hinged oak with walnut inlays. In the rear left is my all oak with a sliding drawer. Drawer is poplar. Right rear is spanish cedar bottom and top and pine sides. Thats my first time to hollow the sides. Turned out “decent”. I did that by running the sides across the TS blade at a 45 degree angle….pushing it along a clamped wood board at 45 across the TS Table. A lot of scraping and sanding were required after wards.

Here are a few more pics ….maybe a little closer up. These boxes are joined using basic miters. Bottoms and tops are rabbeted for inset into the box. I am going to attempt box jointing soon…..may the force be with me. LOL. ‘Probably buy a dovetail/box joint jig….any suggestions? I am leaning toward the porter cable 4212. I would appreciate any and all suggestions concerning this. Thanks, Dale

Okay, I worked my way through the projects and saw your earlier post. I’m happier now. I like lots of pictures. Very good work. I like the cove cut.

Nice job on the box. In my house the remote box would disappear along with the remotes.

We once lost all remotes and we went looking. They were found in a child’s lunchbox in a trash bag in a dumpster.

Lucky we found them missing before the trash was picked up.

Now we try to keep them separated.

I posted more pics….hopefully more detail will show thru. If any of you would like more please let me know. You can email me at “vandehberg@att.net”. I got a lot of my ideas for design from the web…just looking around at different sites. It helped me to think outside the box. (pun intended).

Also…I am considering buying a dovetail/boxjoint jig for the router….any suggestions? I am leaning toward the porter cable model # 4212 at woodcraft. Fits my price range and my needs…I think. Later, Uncle Snail
