The boxes that I’ve been working on are doing a number on me. Every time I think I’ve got a handle on what I’m doing, another problem arises. While staring at the problem, all I want to do is force it into a fix. Often, once I’ve stepped away and taken some time, even just half an hour, a solution presents itself. What doesn’t show its face is the next problem that that solution will deliver.

I’m having a real issue with the glued-up boards cupping. The small curvature is causing big problems for me. I managed to get the sides sorted out – they’ll be forced together – but the lid is a different issue. I’m think that some cross-grain action is in order. How I’m going to make that happen is what I need to figure out now.
