It all started with my frustration with dovetails and dovetail jigs and the problematic process when using thinner stock. After my post on the LB forums, I took some advice and cut them by hand, not dovetails but square box cuts. After burning through some stock, I found a comfortable pattern and started getting better.. by the end of my journey I had to rectangular boxes with no use… Sooooo I cut a slit, ran them around the router a few times and ended up making un-openable banks for my older sons (21 and 19) who need to save some money some how.
I told them not to open them till they were full and then spend the money on something fun… I also put a secret note in the boxes so they have a nice surprise message from Dad in future..
Not a great project but it was fun and a learning experience.
