Day 3, Simply Beautiful Boxes at Marc Adams
We finished day 3 of box making and you can see progress in the photos above and below. Today I demonstrated how to cut hinge mortises, how to install tabs for opening, how to make a box joint jig and box joints using the table saw. There is a great deal of learning going on. We make mistakes and we learn. We are successful and we learn from that, too. Most of my students are working on a variety of box designs using a variety of woods. Tomorrow I will teach one more joinery technique and begin instruction in making inlay. No doubt there will be other things, too. I am grateful for the excellent staff at Marc Adams School.
