Using the Cross-Lap Joint…

December 14, 2009 by  
Filed under Craft Paint Boxes

Today’s Router Tip is using the Cross-Lap joint to separate items for your Custom Paint Boxes. We start by taking measurements using the inside measurement tool on the Dynamic Box Calculator. You need to make the Cross-Lap dividers for your box is bit larger than the item designed to fit into the desired spot. For this example I am creating a Paint Box that can hold 4 of the 1 Pint Jar.

To use the Dynamic Box Calculators follow this link to the two box Calculators.
