I finally finished a side project I’ve been meaning to wrap up for a month or so.
I chose to make it the way I did because it used all that I have learned about woodworking so far and nearly every major tool in my shop.
I am new to woodworking and have only recently acquired my scroll saw, table saw, dado blades, router, and hand planes.
I also made my first box-joint jig for the project.
This project was full of firsts for me and I am pleasently surprised with how it turned out.
I have learned a lot from it, the largest being the necessity of using decent wood instead of the HD special (tear out was hard to avoid).
And strips of painters tape while cutting box-joints helps a lot to avoid it.
