My first box with legs.
I’m not convinced.
Any pointers here?
Two reasons to try legs out.
1. Extra strength to the mitre joint without using splines (keys, slipfeathers whatever you care to call them).
2. I like the look of them on other peoples boxes ie. Triumph1’s Nine Lives.
The box is Yew, Padauk and Purpleheart. Measures 188×108 x 78mm. Finish is sanding sealer and wax.
This is also the first time I’ve used my newly built drum sander to precisely thickness parts and finish things flat and smooth. It makes the world of difference and I don’t know how I did without it.
