Sorry i don’t have any better pictures. I bought this box face a while ago on ebay for about $12. Finally got around to building a box around it. I had some trouble with my 45’ angles, so i had a bit of a gap, but it came out ok. If you guys have a good way of getting a perfect 45 degree let me know, i usually try my adjustable square and line it up to my blade, but it’s always just slightly off. Anyways! i gave this one to my dad, he likes it a lot. Finished it with mineral oil, wax and put a few coats of poly over it. Thanks for looking!

Perfect 45?!? In my dreams! This looks nice. There are ways to hide the gaps, that’s where the expertise comes in. I just saw one in the July/August edition of FWW magazine yesterday, using wax to fill the gap.

Great looking bank. I saw just a day or so ago about using a 45 degree router bit. Haven’t tried it yet, but soon.

After looking at this P.O. box and the earlier one you made, I think you worry too much on getting the “perfect” 45. Anyone would be proud to own either one of these boxes.

We are our own worst critic and most times we are too demeaning of our own work. That being said, just keep trying and trying. I have my own way/style of cutting 45’s and I am sure most people could not do it my way but it works for me. Anyway, keep on doing what you do. You are very good at it.

Nice box, and the 45’s look good too. I use a Incra 1000 HD miter gauge for my 45’s. My DeWalt miter saw is pretty accurate also, but I always reset it using a piece that I cut on the table saw using the Incra.
