Just a simple box I made for a friend. Nothing too special here. Maple sides, front and back. Oak top. Mahogany inner dovetail. Watco finish.

Thanks. It’s the first time I tried them. I’ll get better at them over a few projects.

Nice job. The corners add a lot of pizzazz to it.

Thanks all. I did use Incra to make the corners. Never did that before. Pretty fun.

Thanks a lot folks. A couple of other people now want a box made, so I will have more opportunities to practice my Incra technique!

Simple and fancy at the same time. Any kernels of wisdom regarding the Incra jig? I’ll own one in the next few months.
