This was my first stab at doing box joinery. It is nothing really worthy of being on this site but I was proud of how well my joints turned out so I figured I would throw it on here. The wood is just a pallet that I jointed and planed and then re-sawed in half.

That’s what makes it worthy of being on this site! Good job. Looks better than the box joints I’ve never made.

I just built my first box joint box yesterday as well.
How did you cut the slots? I used a Rockler jig mounted on the router table.

That will make a great utility shop box and you probably learned quite a lot. The joints look fine. Whenever you feel like it go ahead and make a box with some better material. It’s the best way to learn.

Nice tight box joints! Could you post a link to the video as I’m always interested in a new technique?
