Rebated joints – adds some extra strength to box construction. The extra strength isn’t really needed and a normal Butt Join would be ok, I just thought – why not. It does require a bit of extra work though.

I chose the sections of timbers for the colours and knots. The colours will look good with some oil applied.

Entry hole drilled…

Below – I’ve used oil to bring out the nice wood colours
