Here is a recent box / small chest that I completed. It was my first time trying out the new Freud box joint blades I bought, and I used a home made box joint jig that is set up for very fine adjustments.
The sides of the box are walnut and mahogany. The top and bottom panels are lacewood.
The finish is wipe on poly and paste wax. The box measures 12” x 10 3/8” x 5” deep. Making the box joints was pretty easy, but glueing this thing together was a bit of an excercise. If there are any other people that have any tips on glueing box joints together, I’d love to hear them!
Thanks for looking and commenting.
