Why do we use 1/8" box joints and round over the corners on most of our work?
The smaller the box joint the stronger the union of the two pieces of wood. We use 1/8" joints as our standard because they are small enough to create a strong union and visually they are attractive with the 3mm woods that we prefer to work with. We could use larger joints as others do and save a lot of time with glueing, but we don't because we would like our timeless designs to be handed down from generation to generation.
Rounding the corners takes a lot of sanding but we feel it is worth it because our pieces look better, hold up to wear better and feel great in your hand.
