take parts and just add beer...

i spent the first two weeks in may at the inside passage school, and i had the time to finish my box.

most of the work was done by hand, with the exception of the bottom panel rabbet, partition grooves, and mortises. this was not for some grand spiritual reason, it was mostly because the machines were off at night.

this was my third go around at the school at this time of year, and i must say, it is my favorite time. the evenings in the shop, with a small group of people working hard to finish projects is downright invigorating.

sorry i don't have any more detail photos of the joints, i left the camera at home.
