My brother in law has a birthday coming up so I thought of making him a box. I used rabbets for assembly and put the box together then cut the top with my table saw. Came out very strong. This was a first for me. Mortised in hinges. I think I’m getting the hang of this. You might ask, Jeff, with all the joinery you have learned in the last year, why the screws? Well, purely for appearance. I wanted a slight “industrial” look for this as he was a mechanic for many years til he retired. Added a wrench (wood) and engraved his name. Made from poplar and sealed with low gloss poly. Wrench stained with red oak.
