Special Box For A Friend IV

Here is the box being dry fitted before final glue up.
This is the glue up with the box upside down.
The top is in place with the bottom open where
it will be screwed on later. This is to enable the
bottom to be removed so the contents can be
taken out.
              Here it is glued up and sanded. The slot is in the
front so Wedding Gift Cards can be put in. My
friend has decided to put the finish, so my work
is done.

Here I'm milling the sides to accept the top.
Another shot of the same process.
Here the top is being milled to attach to the sides.

Special Box For A Friend II

Here we are back from Mastercraft. The wood has been
milled to thickness. The large piece on the bottom is
for the top and bottom of the box. The thickness of that
piece is 1/2 inch. The smaller pieces are for the sides,
and are milled down to 3/4 inch thick.
Here I'm using my secret weapon, the Incra Jig.
I'm putting the dovetails in one end of the front
and back pieces.
Here I have dry fitted the four sides. I'll take
them apart and mill further to accept the top
and bottom. 

See you next time . . .
