Well, I’ve got my jig to make box joints! Bought the plans from John at ibuildit.ca. This was definitely different than the plans that I used from the Wood magazine. Took me awhile to wrap my head around the different methods, but with a few ‘oopps’ and ‘drats!’ I muddled my way through. A lot more complicated than I had thought. Used up a lot of my scrap plywood, so the jig only cost me the cost of the plans. As you can see from the last picture, I was able to make a box 5 minutes after my jig was completed! It’s not the best box at the moment but I just wanted to see if all the joints fit….and they did….now, for some serious box making. I’m sure you’ll be seeing a few boxes in the near future….
