1st time I used a dado box joint blade. Took awhile to set up so not to have tear out on the back side of wood, but got alot of good tips form LumerJocks and finally got some good cuts. Oak with 1/8 in cherry in middle of top.
Tung oil finish.

Nice box joints! Oak is not the easiest wood to work with. Congrats. I made my first box joints too not long ago. Fun to do and its such a strong joint.

very nice I made a box that looks like this but it’s white oak and walnut mine didn’t have the box joints though I was still working on perfecting those.

NICE! BUT you shouldnt have done this.Now you will be addicted like I am.My wife finally said “no more boxes”.We have run out of places to put them and Ive given all my friends more than they have room for and yet I make more! Enjoy.

Nice box, especially for a first, box joints can be lots of fun to do and use for boxes, yes tear out can be a problem without sacrificial backing boards, there are so many ways to make box joints, looks like You are on a good start, thanks for sharing

Very nice. I’m working my way towards something too (Jewelry box for my wife for her birthday in May) yet I haven’t a clue how to start. haha Well done. I like the tung oil finish too.
