Default box joint project

What project do you use to learn about box joints? Why, toy boxes of course. Maybe after a few hundred more box joints I will begin to get a feel for them. In the meantime, maybe we can at least begin to corral the grandkid clutter. Two of the boxes are gifts, only one for grandma stays here.

Nice! So are you gonna tell us how you cut the box joints?

I used the box joint template for the Leigh dovetail jig, with the OF1400 router - dust collection didn't work so well, but otherwise this setup seemed to work OK. The only suggestion I would offer is to have backer boards front and back to prevent tear out.
