  • Two small box joint boxes

    A couple of small boxes, using box joints.

    Wood used was walnut and curly maple. Finish is tung oil, and the insides are flocked.

    Size is 4 1/4" by 2 3/4" by 2 1/4" high.

    I cut two sets, one from walnut, one from curly maple. Somehow I mixed up some parts before assembly

      Very nicely done Ron. I like your wood choices and the contrasts you chose. Thanks for sharing them with us.

          Those are really nice Ron. I also like the contrast of the different woods.

            I have never tried box joints. You did a perfect job on them.

            If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

                Thanks Larry. I like playing with different wood. Although it can get pricy at times.

                Thanks Susie. These are my first successful set (after messing up a few for practice).

                Thanks Oily.

                The joints ended up being so tight I literally had to hammer them together. Took ultra thin CA glue to penetrate. Split a few during practice.

                  Ron, nice mixs up! Did you cut the box joints on a scroll saw and how much would a boxs that size go for? Lance

                    Thanks Lance.

                    No scroll saw for the box joints. I picked up a small (read cheap) trim router from Harbor Freight and mounted it on a small router table. Cuts were made with a 1/4" router bit using a Incra Jig. Pretty slick attachment. That jig can make some really fancy joints and am anxious to try a few different ones.

                    I will be trying to sell a few so I am wrestling on a price. I may ask $35 or $40, not sure yet. There are really nice small boxes for sale on the web so I am not sure how successful I will be. I am trying to make these unique so they are a little different. I started a free site on Zibbet just to give it a try. Probably will not have anything up for another week or so.

                        Gotta luv when a mix up works so well ;-)! Luv the contrast, and I hear ya on mixing the woods and getting exspensive...sure wish lumber prices would go down so we could make all the sawdust we want!

                        Good luck on the $ale$!
