Hello everybody. Just wanted to share my box. My uncle is an architect and one year when I was a young boy he made us all wooden boxes for Christmas. I thought that was so neat, I still have it on the shelf here as i type this over twenty five years later. Now that is a gift, a gift that will keep giving long after uncle Andy is gone. But he’s not gone yet, so early last year I decided to invest in some woodworking equipment and start making some saw dust. I was determined to make my uncle and everyone in my family a box for Christmas.
After a lot of trial and error and design changes I finally settled on this one. It’s walnut with oak corners and a few coats of Waterlox. Incra LS Positioner for the joinery.

Thank you both very much. I did a lot of research on dovetail and box joint jigs. I had a lot of boxes and hinges to make in a short period of time. When I came across the Incra videos on YouTube I was sold. It wasn't cheap though. I got the LS Positioner, router table, router, router lift, stand, and the hinge crafter for about $1,300. I love it. It gets used on every project, not only for joinery but also for rabbets, dados, edge forming, etc. The instructions are excellent. Believe me, if i can do it you can do it. Guys that make handmade dovetails may frown upon it but dang it's sweet!
Great job... love it. Makes me want to get that jig too. You did Andy proud man.
Beautiful piece of work Todd! The hinges are great and something I've been wanting to tackle. Degree of difficulty with the jig? Thanks! Again, nice work!
