Two towers of boxes


Now half way through the order for 45 boxes… update now 47 on order…

This is what 20 boxes start out as…

IMG_4370The camphor began as a slab… after dressing and resawing to just under 10 mm the boards are cut in a specific sequence to ensure the grain runs all 4 corners.

IMG_4372Dovetail joints of course… the tails have been cut…

IMG_4373After the pins are cut the carcasses are assembled… ready for the grooves to be cut inside top and bottom… to receive the ply wood base and the book matched panels of the top…

And here in the foreground you can see the ones made last week…

IMG_4375Including one of the finished boxes…

IMG_4376Finally a selection of different box carcasses I am making on my own account… not ordered… for sale…

The Gifkins Dovetail Jig is certainly getting a royal workout…

    Guess you are glad you didn’t have to cut all those dovetails by hand!

    Those boxes sure do look nice.
