    Man, there sure must be a lot of dunno trees growing around Hobbs, but the wood seems to be pretty. Nice job on the boxes. I wish I knew what to tell you about the chipout you had on the box joints. I've done them with some pretty brittle wood, but when I used the backer board (as you did) it handled the problem for me.

    Nice work, you are really lucky, access to a big shop and time to do stuff like that!

    Thanks for the post.

    Beautiful work Matt.
    I agree, I would be afraid to take them to work.
    One day I plan to make a bunch of small boxes. Best way I can think of to pratice those finger joints.

    Nice job Matt. I am sure that any carpenter would be happy to have one of those boxes.

    I like the term "dunnowood" and expect that I will use that term in the future. I certainly have some of it in my wood rack.
    Cheers, Frank

    Good job Matt! You work fast. The 'Git "r" dun!' really does apply to you.

    Very nice work. I like those alot.

    You might try running a kife or cutting type of marking guage across the grain at the bottom of the joint before cutting on the jig. This will help to control the chip out.
