Here is a test box I made trying out BritBoxMaker’s EZ miter method… almost. Well, it seems that when you combine my questionable router skills combined with my $99 Sears router plus table combo, you come out with some pretty poor joints. So, table saw to the rescue. After separating the five pieces, i carefully lined up the two end pieces with the top and taped them back together then ran them through the saw, taking off about a 32nd of an inch. then I did the same for the sides. Ended up with some nice clean miters while only removing about an eighth of an inch of material.
Once I got past that hurdle, the box went together nicely and I’m very pleased with the results.
The woods are Zebrano and purple heart with a figured maple Medallion. The finish is tong oil, poly and wax.
I appreciate your comments and suggestions.
