Simple box making (notes to stop myself from re-inventing this)
- Find a rectangular piece of plywood
- Measure width - divide by 3 (this will be the -height- of the box)
- Set this width on the table saw (clean with)
- Saw length wise. So the last strip will in fact be smaller than the first two. That is good - it needs to be the the width of the box minus the thickness of the wood.
- Cut, from each strip; one piece the length of the box (back to back). Generally you can do this twice; for two boxes.
- Cut from the two wider strips; two square pieces. Generally you can do this twice; for two boxes.
- Adjust the height of the tablesaw to half the tickness of the plywood. Adjust the distance to be half as wel.
- Make the flat cuts and the perpendicular cuts.
- Finally, if needed - adjust the width of the bottom piece.
- Optional: Use a spade drill (20-25mm) to dril two holes in the fronts as a handle
- Optional: Route these to get them nice and round.
- Optional: Glue two strips of wood about halfway on the long ends - to support a sub-drawer/box.
- Glue the bits together; use the nailgun to keep them fixed while the glue dries.
