    I finally figured out how to make those handles on the side of the boxes.

    Getting ready for spring.

    Those are some great looking boxes you built, just wish I had the space to work some up myself.

    Yeah baby, Yeah! :yahoo:

    Very nice looking job. Your inner cover looks exactly how I make mine, round hole with an opening on one end. Your boxes are a step up from mine, I only use rabbet joints on the corners, and I don't have the nice curved handles, just straight dado cuts.

    I made these on my table saw with a regular blade. Piece of cake.

    Takes me maybe 20 seconds to cut the handle. I can cut them before OR after the box is put together.

    I have 30 unassembled mediums in my garage that I need to figure out handholds for. I want to see how you're making the handholds.

    I will take some pictures of the jig tomorrow and explain how I make them.

    It's still work in progress as I want to make a few small adjustments then clean it up a little, but it worked great as it is.
