I have got the box sides machines up. The mitre joints are cut and glued together.
I decided to use the Bessey clamp - VAS-23 to clamp the box sides which made life so much easier. I think every workshop should have a couple of these.
The Birds Eye Huon Pine lid came out of the press without any issues. I really love the figure on it.
I was going to use a Northern NSW Red Cedar box sides to give a contrasting color but decided against it. I might use it on the burl myrtle kid instead.
Next step is to put in the trim around the box then rout the lid to match the box.
