Box 7

The finger box redeemed, or at least set on that path.

April 2

Not so much vexed or perturbed but challenged by the considerable imperfection of the first finger box I set out to do it again but with greater concentration, attention to avoiding specific previous mistakes, revised methods including using a coping saw to remove the waste from (I think it’s called a tail) the space where the finger from the other side of the joint goes.  I think I got more than half the distance to the goal line, this one did not scream failure, it was OK enough that I even made a modest little lid for it.  The wood is poplar with the ever present 3/8 inch cedar floor.
