That will make the mating pieces the same thickness.
Hmmm. Am I thinking wrong, the inside angle is 90į+ 45į = 135į. the bisected angle would be 65.5į.

Yeh, as the total angle opens up, ie gets larger, the actual chopped miter also increases numerically, ie getting closer to a 90deg cut.

You are all much smarter than I am - but no more! I have the mathematical solution and will use it on the next piece! Thanks Herb and Chris... please promise me you will reveal my ineptitudes every time you see them.

Many thanks for all the encouragement after such a klutzy start. The 1/4" material wasn't as tough to deal with Steve since it was very sturdy Maple. Another 'improvement' I'll be making is to 'mic' the stock coming out of the planer and fitting it into a test dado for the best fit. This can only get better, right? Hello? Ha!

I like the overall design. The radiused items add interest to it. For a first try at box building you get a high five, a gold star and an attaboy.

Brian,

We all tend to be critical of our projects, but lets face it, it is very nice and practical and a gift. It sure beats my table piece that only holds napkins and the S&P shakers !
I do like that mine has a handle, did you consider that as a feature ?

Dan

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

Yes, it was a good learning experience and I can't ask anything for what is essentially a prototype for gaining skills. I really prefer to gift what I make as most of my friends are looking for or likely to spend what these things are worth. Cuts out a lot of expectations and complication in doing this well.

For a handle, since it wasn't going to go anywhere we didn't want a handle sticking up in the way of all the cubbies. And it's a bit hefty so two hands are needed to move it with all its contents still loaded in it. A smaller, simpler version could certainly use a handle. Good thought...
