Box Joint Exercise

I really aim to master box jointing using the simple shop made jig. Here is a sample of one of my more serious exercises. Looks a lot better than the ones I’ve done in the past. This box measures 6×5 x 3.75 in. finished with clear gloss lacquer. I don’t know what the hinge system is called. It consists of dowels driven into the sides of the box lid.

Nice Box Ed!!
It looks like you have already mastered the box joint, my Friend…
I’m not sure what that way of hinging is called either… Pin-pivoted??

littlecope,
Thanks for the kind word. I looked over your projects and my comment is, “SIMPLY AWESOME”. They have a personality on their own, very distinct from the rest.

Ed, I’d say you have mastered the finger joints. That is a very striking box. I like the contrast!

Beautiful. Box joints on the tablesaw with a dado stack or on a router table? They look beautiful and the project is very classy.

A very nice little box. Small boxes are not as easy as they look to build, but this one looks very nice. I like the placement of the knot, it adds a artistic interest. Thanks for sharing

Very nice Ed…nice job on the joinery. I haven’t tried ithis kind of joinery coz i know how hard it will be for me, but with your jig, life inside the shop will be a lot easier. Thumbs up Ed.
