i saw a cremation box i thought i could make trying to do box joints…no reason other than i liked the shape. my wife sees it during dry fitting it and says,so,are you making me a box?(insert your own joke here). so with a small modification,she now has a box,then i made some more for christmas gifts.’ made all out of scrap pine wood i had . my wife said she will put the poly on for me,i hate that part, and she does a better job at it anyways.

Love it. Thanks for posting it. I want to learn how to make a reasonable box joint sooner than later.

Great Job on the joints! I am currently trying to learn how and it is a very slow process for me. Maybe i’ll get the hang of it.

Lovely boxes.. I love them. I’ve just registered for a seminar at Lee Valley for making finger joint boxes on the scroll saw, so I’d love to try and make a box just like you have done here. You did an awesome job, keep up the good work.

Nice job on the boxes. BJJ on the TS?

“Wife wants one of the boxes”.
What’s she gonna say when she can’t get the lid off unless she turns the box upside down? LOL!

She applies poly on all = she gets one for herself. Nice trade. :)
