Walnut and Agba Box

A box made out of walnut and agba wood.

I've always wanted to make a more traditional woodworking project using finger joints and finally found the time to do it. This was my first time using american walnut and that block came all the way from the United States a bunch of months ago. I hope you enjoy this video as well as the final object. I wanted to try something different from usual and ended up raising the top panel as well as creating a floating look on the lid. Is almost seems like there are two boxes, one on the top of the other.

I couldn’t resist showing you a few more shots and close ups from the crib 🙈 It was such a joyful build and having the support from @rockler_woodworking, @avidcnc, @cmt_orangetools and my Patreon members was the cherry on top! When I stop for a moment and leave the hard work and tiredness aside, I get these realization glimpses of how my workspace is truly becoming my dream from 5, 6, 8 years ago. And all of you take part on it as well as some amazing brands that all together carry me around and allow me to be closer of my limits of essence.

What is going on…a new project already?! 🤯 I am in serious need of more shop storage and I have to start somewhere.
I decided to build a few wall cabinets and this @cmt_orangetools precision dado blade is perfect to speed up some rabbets. Wait, what?! Dado blade in Europe? That’s right. They exist and CMT makes them! 🤩

Here are some white fluffy clouds, just how I like em! 😍 In order to get them perfectly white, I sprayed 2 coats of primer over the valchromat, 3 coats of Cloud-White paint AND 2 final coats of transparent waterbased matt varnish on them. I used a pretty cheap spray gun + compressor and I’m definitely not a pro, but somehow managed to achieve a good result.
