This step is pretty straightforward but having the bandsaw set at exactly 90 degrees is very important .
I went ahead and did the round overs on the top and bottom edges of the box using a 1/4” round-over bit set up on the router table. I also did all of the sanding to the box sides up to 220 grit.The band saw is set 3/4” from the fence and just high enough to clear the box.
Now it’s just a matter of slowly feeding the box through the blade to make the cut.To get rid of the saw marks, I start off with 60 grip sandpaper on a flat surface and using a circular motion, sand until the saw marks are gone , then proceed with 100 grit , then 220 grit. This assures that both surfaces are nice and flat.
Next step—Morticing the hinge
