I wanted to practice some box joints, so I downloaded a router table box-joint jig plan from Fine Woodworking.com. I built the jig, planed down some old maple baseboard trim, and and cut the box joints for the pencil holder. I glued it up and used a round over bit on the sides and top. Finished with wipe-on poly and wax. The joints arent perfect – I tried to sand a mixture of sawdust/glue in the joints, but the joints turned out darker than the wood. Anyway, it was good practice before I started on a box.
