Box 5

March 21

A very rough finger box.  This was my first shot at finger / box joints for the corners.  The walls are now a reasonable thickness at 1/2 inch.  In this case they are recycled wood, I suspect pine.  The imprecision I was able to generate I could not begin to make detailed documentation of.  I pinned the fingers with dowels, sometimes protruding through the wall to which I was pinning the finger.  I fought through to make it sufficient to be a box and learned about the tolerances a bit and specific mistakes to avoid hand-cutting the fingers and spaces between them.  The thinner walls greatly improved the sense of usefulness but the execution failures doom this box to being a bent nail or old string holder.
