This small box is actually a study for a jewelry box that I will post tomorrow. Made of pallet wood and found scraps – maple, cherry, ash, walnut. The experiment involved edge laminating 1/4” x 2” pieces of cherry and ash then flat
laminating the boards alternating cherry to ash & ash to cherry to produce interesting alternating two piece box joint end grain. It shows a mild effect of what I wanted, but it is a little difficult to predict what end grain will look like. The lid is frame and panel with full length splines and a walnut panel that is 1/8” proud. In order to do this project I built a box joint jig with a different method of use.After building the jig I realised that I didn’t want to operate it from behind the fence, so I turned it around and put a spring return on the sliding table. That allows, for a better view of the work piece and, I think, better dust collection.

The small storage box with lid holds related tools and is an example of the box joints

Terry that is a nice wee box
Your box jig is a great piece of design.
