A pretty little box. That cutter kind of intimidates me. Looks like it is only really good for "cigar" type, shallow boxes of thin wood. So how do you determine the width of the side pieces?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

You make yours a lot prettier than I do mine. This is one from way back, when I was making the small Wizzard banks, and had some small pieces laying around. Made it for holding my wrapped coins. 100% glue fastened, and very sturdy. Didn't even have to cut them, just used the pieces as is.

Harry, that comb cutter (according to the instructions that came with mine) should have the teeth staggered, rather than all in a line. it reduces shock to the wood and stops thinner wood actually shattering.

Tom, You can use any combination of the five cutters to make a side panel up to 40 mm (1 1/2") But with careful planning i have successfully turned the wood over to get another set cut, making the box side 80 mm (3" near as damn it).

Really useful for people like me with no hand tool skills.

You can even make multisided boxes with it.

What you say makes sense Bob. No instructions came with mine and the spacing was not accurate, I stripped it and cleaned off paint that was between the cutters and juggled the spacers to achieve accuracy.

Beautifully made Bob, I must attempt one like that one day.

That yellow looks like Yonico. I have a couple birdsmouth cutters of that make and they are quite good, but as far as instructions go.......

I have the trend version. It comes with a quite good instruction sheet. Or it would be if it wasnt printed sideways on a 1/4 strip of A4 and then folded concertina style?? !

It also came with a set of brass shims, so that if you sharpened them you could use the shims to get back the even spacing. i've used mine quite a bit but havent attempted sharpening any router bits yet.
