    Look up "Using dado to cut box joints for hive bodies" under Bee Forum.

    Try that link there is a discussion and links on Box Joints. I had trouble finding that file myself but someone posted it there.

    I'd give you the link but I can't figure out how to put the link here!

    Hello filmmlif et al,
    Here I go again. I too tried to build boxes with the fingerjoints but my cheep table saw did not allow me to install a dado blade. So I decided to use my router and a dovetail jig to make my boxes. The proof is in the pudding and so my boxes are now two years old,only glued and hold up very well. The other advantage is that with this dovetailing you are cutting a complete corner at a time and it also does not require subsequent trimming. Maybe you want to try it too, I am convinced. Take care and have fun.

    I agree with this suggestion. I find cutting the joints for my boxes to be much faster on a dovetail jig than using box joints.

    I'm not a wood worker (just learning)
    Can you do dovetails with a tablesaw? Or router only

    With a router you will need a dovetail jig. If you do it on a table saw you are not saving anything so you might as well just go box joint.

    With the router and a jig you cut both pieces of a corner at one time. very fast and perfectly matched.
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.

    Cabinet makers used to cut them by hand, but that is way out of my league. I use a dovetail jig and a router.

    This is the jig that I use: http://www.amazon.com/Porter-Cable-4...etail+jig+4210
