My Grandson, Will, admired a box I made using BritBoxMaker’s technique – http://lumberjocks.com/BritBoxmaker/blog/17048 – and asked if I could make him something similar to keep the dice and other items he uses in the Dungeons & Dragons games he designs. However, I decided to create a finger joint version using the jig I completed recently – http://lumberjocks.com/projects/293986 – but needed some help in working out how the actual construction should proceed. I found this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sc81rDlBGrA&list=FLACdgVVUaH2fHCbFkc20sWQ&index=3&t=186s where Dustin Penner demonstrated the whole process of making a finger joint box with a sliding lid.

His technique for putting stopped rebates for the base and sliding lid solved the problems I was having with how to go about this aspect, but instead of making a separate lid end, I used a bandsaw to cut the top off the open end of the box as the gap left would be narrow, and it proved to be OK.

I got Will to send me a copy of a suitable logo for his box, and used some Water-slide decal paper for Inkjet printers from Crafty Computer Paper (a UK company) to create a decal for the lid. Now all I need is a strong cardboard box in which to put Will’s box for posting!
