    Default Got it! Made some decent boxes! :)

    I finally got the finger joints figured out, never came up with time to mess with it before until today. What do you think?

    More fingers than on most boxes aren't there? But nice looking job.

    Probably. They are 13/16 fingers. This batch of boxes had very tight joints, a little too tight for me. I'll have to modify my jig slightly. Thanks!

    Beautiful, other than the handholds I'de think they were commercially made.

    I think places like Kelley use a larger diameter blade on a pivot. Next years field day, I aught to take a tour of their fabrication shop, I think they tour the whole manufacturing process.

    Looks good to me, most would say pro. I am not counting the finger joints, I say as long as it works. The hand holds looks like the ones I make on my table saw, the jig was also inspired by Mr. Hogan.
