Mitered Box with Trays Plan


Learn the secrets to building a perfect mitered box with this printed plan. Every woodworker knows that it’s not hard to make a box. But, it is very difficult to build one that is truly beautiful in every respect. Mistakes are hard to hide because on such a small piece even the tiniest flaw will be magnified. With this printed plan, you’ll learn exactly how Matt Kenney constructs an exquisite box with seamless grain match and gap-free joints.

Yes, you will have to sweat the details to get it right! To excel at box making, you will have to consider every detail. From the proportions to the quality of the joinery, from the wood’s color to the pattern and size of its grain – every detail must be flawless. Matt shows how to successfully handle these subtle but important details. For the outside, he chose riftsawn cherry for its warm color and straight, tight grain and complementary quartersawn spruce with arrow-straight grain for the top and bottom. The pull is crafted from cocobolo with rich brown color and grain that makes it pop from the rest of the box.

Precise techniques guarantee success. You will also learn how Matt achieves dead-accurate miters, streamlines glue-up to avoid glue starvation, substitutes tape for clamps, saws off the top to produce a tight-fitting lid, and more.
