This was an exercise in finger/box joints. I made a jig for a table router, by the 2nd test joint it was dialed in. The timber is 19mm (3/4”) Meranti, also known as Pacific Maple. After gluing up the boards I hand planed them flat – that was my zen moment with this project. It was very satisfying to see the curled shaving easing out of the plane.

I squeezed the finger joints together with clamps at glue up then a bit more planing to tidy up the pins which sat slightly proud. The piece was sanded to 250 grit and stained using a walnut dye. It was finished with 2 coats of a home made ‘Danish Oil’ (1/3 Linseed Oil, 2/3 Wipe-On Poly) then wax applied with steel wool and buffed when dry.

There are some screws holding the ply wood back and the castors on, there are no other fasteners in the piece.

Thanks for looking.

Great solution for the printer stand, and a nice box too!
