Made in the same theme as the previous posted project. This one measures just 5 1/2×4 x 2 inches deep. Made from some nicely figured sycamore and walnut for the inlay. Finished with tung oil and Briwax.

I still don’t get how this is done! Do you have a link where I can see how?My gues will be that you make first one, and then offset, and then make another one.Nice done, impressed.

Ahhh… Like mafe, do you have a link showing how you made this box? Maybe it’s just early, but can’t figure this one out. Thanks for posting.

Nice looking box. Sycamore is an often overlooked wood.

I never realized how beautiful sycamore is. Great job and I am also interested in how you did this.

Good job! I have recently purchased the Incra setup and look forward to producing some of these beautiful joints. How is the learning curve?
How it is done… do a YouTube search on Incra double dovetails.

Nice looking box Rob. You did a great job and I like the finish you used..I also have the Incra LS Supersystem and am impressed with all the variations and accuracy that this is capable of doing.

Thanks for the comments guys. I first saw a demonstration of the Incra jig on Youtube. Having seen pieces with these joints before and asking ‘How did they do that?’ I’ve had this jig for about a year now and wouldn’t do without it…...The learning curve isn’t that bad, helped along by the suburb demo DVD that comes with the kit.When you’re used to using it, the templates allow for certain adaptations and modifications in the joint…..Very cool! But of course you can’t get anywhere without good stock preparation. That’s half the job!

Great work Rob. A beautiful box and flawlessly made. The wood is very attractive as well.
Mads You can do this by hand without an Incra jig . A great LJ blog on this can be found at this link. I think this is the best blog ever posted on LJ because it is very thorough and extremely well done by a very talented craftsman.
I wouldn’t mind trying my hand at this myself, but so far I’ve been too lazy.

The INCRA with a Lee Valley router table where one of the first big ticket items I added to my shop. I thought maybe this purchase was a mistake. I’ve done some box joints with this fence that came out perfectly. After seeing the beauty of this box, the inspiration originally attributed to buying the fence is back thank you very much for sharing and wonderful workq
