Making Wooden Boxes – Quick and Easy

Today’s post is a quick and easy read, inspired by a post on http://www.KimbertonWoodworks.com titled “A Simple Oak Box“.

In his quick post Wilton shows you an oak box that he made using one of our old Router Box Joint Jigs.  He said, “this project was just plain shop fun.”  Well done Wilton, we agree!  Box making is one of the easiest ways for you to make someone a gift (hint, hint – Mother’s Day is only a couple of weeks away…better get to work!).  Here are some suggestions on how you can quickly and easily make beautiful, clean, sturdy boxes:

Use our Ultimate Box Joint Jig on your router table or table saw to easily make 1/4″, 3/8″ or 1/2″ box joints.  This is a woodshop  accessory that no woodworker should be without!

Get yourself a good Box Joint Blade Set for your table saw.  We have options from Oshlun and Freud, both will provide you with excellent, clean cuts and will make your life a lot easier.

Use our Eagle America or PriceCutter Box Side Router Bits to give your custom boxes a gorgeous, distinctive look and design.  See our Build-A-Box Value Packages for extra savings. That’s it for this post, but click over to our Box Making Supplies category to see even more options such as our new Spline Jig, Music Box Movements, Box Making books and more.
