Here is yet another small box (my first box post though). I really like to make them now and then as I get to practice joints and skills necessary for alot of other larger projects….and I do not have to spend a fortune on wood. This box is based on the MLCS fast joint system. I got some additional fast joint templates lately as a gift and wanted to experiment a bit with them.
The MLCS fast joint system has been reviewed here a few times so I will not go into this tool in detail. Sufice it to say that the system makes decorative joints using a router bit and templates. If you are interested in details on this tool….do a search here or take a look at it on You Tube or the MLCS website.
I used cocobolo for the sides, Ishipingo Roja (it is called ocelot wood in some places because the grain can look very much like an ocelot’s coat) for the top, and Luan ply for the bottom. The finish is Danish Oil and two coats of satin wipe on poly.
The dimensions are 6 1/2” W X 8”L 5 1/2” H
Any comments and critiques welcome. Thanks for looking.
