    Default First time building boxes

    Here is the first run of boxes we have ever made. Got a stack of lumber ready to plane and cut down. I think the finger joints came out pretty good sense I've never made them before. Next run I will get rid of the little finger you see on the bottom and make that one big finger. Here a few pictures of the finished product.

    They look a lot like mine only with better box joints and better wood!

    I had to fix my table saw to get them straight, but it's great fun to make boxes now. Frames are more work.

    Just make sure they are square. Measure corner to corner X and it needs to be the same.

    I took a few minutes and made one of these box building jigs for box assembly. I recommend it.
