Synopsis: This striking box, with its maple sides and contrasting mesquite top, is one of Doug Stowe's favorites and is an ideal project for demonstrating a continuous-grain construction method that is quick, simple, and elegant.
The top is a floating panel that sits in a groove in the sides that serves two purposes: it makes the parts look thicker than they are, and it hides the gap for seasonal wood movement.The sides are joined with miters and splines.
Simple jigs and sleds, plus a no-clamp assembly method help speed the construction process...
