I am in another small project, a cedar blanket box. This will be my second box. 30×18x16 roughly.
In order to get as straight a top as possible, I made a glue up jig. I’d take a picture but my wife has my camera.
It’s some particle board with rosewood paper which I taped with packing tape all over. This board is about 3’x20”.
I expect a nice flat board when it’s dry.
Then I plan to rip it down the middle with my BS and plane both sides and re glue.
Should be a lid to be proud of when I’m finished. The rest of the box is complete.
The construction is minimalist, a few screws and some brads. The construction method uses slat joinery for the main body and frames to add strength. The result is a very strong box with no obvious method of joinery. Somewhat like the first box I made pictured.
