45 – How to Make an Interlocking Wall Shelf with box joints & half lap in 4K

How to Make an Interlocking Wall Shelf episode 45

See how I made the box joint jig. It’s a quick video, and the jig takes less than an hour to make. And it produces perfect box joints. https://youtu.be/-GszYAh0Yhg

Also, check out the cross-cut / dado – sled video. I designed this sled to have removable zero clearance inserts, so that you can go back and forth between a dado and a regular blade. https://youtu.be/njsD5W6fcI0

My wife was looking for a new shelf to hang on the wall to hang on the wall to either hold some collectibles or some more of her books. She came across a design that she liked and showed it to me. I thought this would be a great design to show some nice joinery and it would make a pretty shelf as well.

This is an interlocking wall shelf made from walnut and cherry so that the contrast can show off the box joints. The individual square shelf units are held to one another with a type of half-lap joint called a cross-lap joint. These are two great joints to put our new crosscut sled and box joint jig to work.

I hope you enjoy it.
