Nice work.Having finished a bench, and gotten a track saw plus planes, I decided I wanted to learn how to make basic box joints, took me a couple attempts and quite a lot of tool and jig development to be able to reach this:
FWIW I am just making something over 50 joints that are stepped box joints, so slightly more complex, that don’t need a jig just correct setting of the table saw fence and blade hight.
So if you have a table saw, while the setup takes quite a few tiny exact adjustments, the stepped joint is easier and potentially faster as, as long as all the pieces are virtually the same thickness the joint cutting cutting is the same on every part.
This is the joint I am talking about on a setup piece.
