Re: [BKARTS] Gluing Boxes Square - Using a jig to help



You can purchase it from The Library of Congress for $10:

You'll have to supply your own 3-ring binder...

Hi Don,

That book is listed on Amazon for $360.  Does that sound right...sounds like
a pretty expensive book to me.  I'm in Australia and would have to order it
in.

Brad,

If you will make your boxes double walled according to the instructions in
Boxes for the protection of rare books: Their design and construction,
Brown, Margaret, ISBN O-8444-0365-2 You will not experience this 'fiddly'
problems. Your boxes will be strong and easier to assemble (though a bit
more work to cut).

Hi All,

I am just starting out in making boxes.  After cutting the box pieces
I glue all the edges together with PVA - fiddly.  Does anyone have any
good ideas on making/purchasing a jig for gluing the pieces together
so they remain square and the edges are glued together flush.
