Default Boxes for K-Cup coffee / tea

Got a request for a couple boxes to hold K-Cup coffees and teas. I made 3-boxes. Birdseye maple, tiger maple and rosewood. The tops are walnut, mahogany and birdseye maple. Finish is 1/3 Zar polyurethane, 1/3 boiled linseed oil, and 1/3 mineral spirits. These haven't been waxed at this time. Each box holds 12 cups. I made a mock-up for double stacked, but you couldn't get your fingers around the bottom cups to remove them from the box. So I decided to stick with single stack. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Very nice boxes, Malcom. Little boxes are lots of fun aren't they.

Beautiful boxes Malcolm. Is your spline jig homemade or is it a store bought model?

I made my own spline jig and really like using it. Pictures attached show the steps. The item gets clamped to the vertical piece. This was made from middle grade HD ply, The vertical backer is locks on to the miter slot embedded in a dado on the slanted part of the jig. The main thing is to cut the 45 degree angles as precisely as possible and check for the 90 with a draftsman's triangle. About 3 hours work in all.
