Second ever project. Time to learn the box joint. I now have a jointer and planer so I mill the Mulberry down to 1/4 inch stock. Learning, Learning, Learning…. up hill the whole the way. Wood magazine has an article on a box joint jig so I gave it a shot.
I didn’t realy follow a plan for this box so I don’t even know the dimensions. I think its about 5 inches square. I just set my table saw fence and cut the sides all the same size and wasn’t concerned about the final size. I eventually had to take a measurement when I went to make the lid.
I used Salad Bowl finish on it since my first project was a cutting board and its the only finish I curently own. On the upside I guess I could eat out of it. Looks to be the perfect size for an order of fried rice.
