I made this box as a Christmas present for my future father-in-law (finished just in the nick of time!).
I used my new Freud box joint blades to make the splines. First cut the 3/8” notches, glued in the maple splines, cut and sanded flush. Then reverse the blades without moving the fence to get a perfectly centered 1/4” groove, lower the blade 1/16” and cut again. Glue in walnut splines, cut and sand flush, and presto you have a very cool effect.
Size: 6” x 6” x 6”
Wood: Walnut and Curly Maple
Finish: BLO and wipe-on polyurethane, then buffed.
