Bill Nyberg uses two innovative methods to simplify a common project — a decorative box with a rabbeted lid. The traditional way is to build a solid box, cut off the lid on the tablesaw, and then use a bearing-guided rabbetting bit to rout a rabbet on the inside of one piece and the outside of the other. But the fitting process for this method is tedious, so Nyberg came up with two ways to streamline the process. The first method allows you to cut one of the rabbets before the box is assembled. The second method, which he calls “the inside-out box,” turns the whole process on its ear. Once you try it, you may never make a box the “old” way again. See the article for more info.
