I was eyeing the Ibox jig before your post and searched the site for a few answers and never found good ones.

How good does it work for large parts? Also how does it handle the bat ears on the dado blade or do you have to use a dedicated box joint blade?

I was thinking of using box joints for a 24" x 36" x 16" cabinet.

Funny you should ask.  The jig states that it will do joints from 1/8" to 3/4".  Mine would not.  There was not enough clearance for the stack.  I contacted Incra and confirmed I was going through setup correctly via pictures in emails.  I was an early adopter and Incra's conclusion was that my "follower bar" was an inch too long.  Even though I have had the jig for years they are sending me another bar and instructions for the reportedly 15 minute swap.  Gotta love a group that stands behind their product.  No BS, no "send us a copy of your receipt", none of that noise.  They are not inexpensive but, the take care of their customer base.

If I was way off track and you are talking about large panels versus large fingers . . . may wall mounted plane till / tool cabinet was made on the i-box.

In hardwoods my Freud SD-508 doesn't leave enough bat ears to really see.

It is an older set.  Have folks reported bat ears on the newer ones?

I was asking about larger panels not fingers. I like the look of smaller fingers honestly but we'll see what I do.

I was also tempted to just do really large fingers like 2-3" the same way you'd complete hand cut dove tails. I'm not sure though.

Sorry, I went looking for old posts . . . stuff added above ;-)

This is interesting.  I didn't know there were any dado blades out there that caused bat ears.

Some stacks are worse than others. Marc touched on this with his knock down trestle table build in 2017. Towards the bottom of the page here he talks about it. In the video he compares the sets I can't remember what they were I'd have to watch the video again.

My Forrest set does, not much so it’s no problem, I think box joints sets don’t 

Corrrect but box joint  sets from my limited search max out at 3/8" wide. It'd be nice to get 1/2".

I didn't think we needed another thread from me about urns so I will just tag these on here.  Similar construction to the one above; dovetails this time.

The top is a floating panel.  The scribble on the piece of paper is the targeted profile.

The joinery goes like so.

And it ends up like so.  Here I have it taped off as part of the finishing process.

The bottoms are fitted as in the first one posted above.  I cut the small rabbets with a FTG blade.

You can see that I pre-finish the top edges of the boxes prior to assembly.  I also pre-finish the panels.  This prevents any peel-a-boo appearances of unfinished areas during wood movement.

This one is black walnut and curly white oak.

This is just the initial top coat.  I'll add a pic once they are truly done with feet and all that.

 

 

 

 

Very nice!! Curious on the dimension's of the Urn?
