After finishing my box joint jig, I used it to make a knife block for my brother and his wife for Christmas. I laminated cherry, maple, and purpleheart into a board and then joined them with box joints. I had a little issue with chipout initially because I made the cutout in the jig too tall and had to fill it before continuing.
I was planning on filling the entire thing with the bamboo skewers, but 2,400 skewers still wasn’t enough. So instead of going and picking up more, I just made a thin divider out of mahogany to create a spot to store wooden spoons, spatulas, or other utensils. I finished it with clear danish oil.
