Today's project is a basic box.Knowing how to make a box is a very useful and even necessary woodworking skill.Honestly most projects, including all kinds of furniture, are just a variation on the basic box.
So let's get started .I'm using basic 3/4″ lumber for this box today.First, cut the pieces - four sides, the top and the bottom.Rip to size by first cleaning up one edge, then cutting the other edge to the desired width.
Shave the edges of the lid pieces to straighten, then glue together.Gently clamp to dry.Do not tighten the clamps too much.In my project, the boards were starting to warp.In this case, I use strips of wood coated with packing tape to keep the glue from sticking to it, and clamp both ends of the boards.
It's a lot of clamps for a little project, but each one is necessary.Now it's time for the rabbet joints.Lower your table saw blade so that it is only half the width of your board.Place a 'sacrificial board' against the rip fence, so it can be used against the blade.
