Nice work Mikey…must be a box making time of year…lol I am working on a couple myself outta poplar and cherry. Have to say your box/finger joints are cleaner than mine. Great job so far sir

How are you going to install the bottom?

A quick way to fit a bottom is to cut a groove around the inside of the box with a router bit. Lee Valley has special small diameter bits for this http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=47818&cat=1,46168,46176 . Put bit in a router table raise so top of bit is even with the bottom board thickness, set the box over the running bit and move it around the bit on all sides. makes an even groove in all four sides.

Cut a bottom board a half inch larger than the bottom hole, cut quarter inch rabbit on all four edges to fit into the box groove. You have to round off the corners. Put glue on 3 sides, insert (but don’t glue) bottom piece, glue in fourth side. Then cauls and strap clamps or just a ring of rope to hold the joints tight while it sets up.

looks good mike. FYI – if you are adding this as an ongoing project, start a new blog entry instead of adding as a finished project.
