I just got into woodworking. I’ve had a Shopsmith in the garage for years but never used it. I got a router for Christmas this year and I have been dabbling with small projects since. I built this box this week with miters and keys. I topped it with red oak. Finished with spray poly. I am planning another box with better wood. I was pretty surprised at how well the miters came out.
