Beginning day 3...

I am ready for day three of Box Making at ESSA. The students are asking for demonstrations in adding hinges, using veneers and making inlay. So we will do those things.

Yesterday as shown, students including my cousin Newt Heston (shown) learned to make box joints, also called "finger joints, using a dedicated router table of my own design. I wrote about it a few years back for an article in American Woodworker. It is relatively easy to use and easy to make, but still involves a learning curve. It offers several ways you can mess up and we got most of those out of our systems today. Today offers a bit more clear sailing. And some opportunity for fresh new mistakes.

We learn best by making a few

Make, fix, create, and assist others in learning likewise.
