I really (really) like working with finger joints. They’re such an elegant solution, and I’ve used them for many boxes and trays and even false doors (I’ll be posting about this in the coming days).
But I have a real hard time making these myself on highly custom files. I’ve read everything I can find on this site posted, and just can’t seem to come up with a mental model that helps me grasp how to do these with the correct kerf adjustments and all. I’m an expert in Illustrator and a beginner in Fusion, but I’ve created something I’d like to make with box joints. Below is a screenshot and I don’t mind sharing the actual file.
It’s basically a floating shelf with a false back to allow cables to be passed out behind and up through the top without being seen.
Is there a non finger joint method that’s better I haven’t thought of?
