I have always been a fan of those Craftsman boxes that certain router bits, forstner bits and so forth come in at Sears. With an eye toward attempting to make some simular boxes for items aound the shop that didnt have one, I built a box joint jig for the router table a few months back. I even used it to knock together the beginings of a box that promptly got stuck in a shelf and forgotten. Last week I was using a set of brass router guides and once again decided that they needed a box of their very own so I pulled my unfinished box back off the shelf. Right away I decided it was way too thick so I resawed it into 2 pieces which had the benefit of giving me the materials for two boxes. Glued a piece of cherry that I had planed to 3/8ths to the top and some scrap 1/4” oak plywood for the bottom. Now I am looking for some of the flip latches to finish them up…anyone have an idea who might sell those things? Oh yeah, the Danish Oil was still sitting out from a project yesterday so I used it on these as well.
