Contest Entry: Spring Joint Gift Box
Here's my Level Up entry. This is a spring-joint glue-free gift box. The techniques used here are profiling, slotting, and engraving. As shown in the photos, I'm using this as a gift box for one of my wooden bow ties (also made on the X-Carve). I think this project is well within the reach of a new user with just a bit of experience on the X-Carve, and with a bit more experience, could be customized to any size, any materials, for just about any purpose. I love a tight glue-free joint. I also love the contrast between the walnut sides and the quartersawn sycamore bottom and lid.
Videos for each step are included in the published project, as well as a detailed write-up.
So, there it is. Can't wait to see the outcome here! @sketch42
