Default 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.

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).

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.

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.
