No glue joints

Hi all, playing around with no glue joints. I’m trying to figure out how long/narrow my “grabbers” need to be, so the proofgrade maple doesn’t break.

First proof of concept…

next step a complete box…

Haven’t really done much with the files found here…

…other than print one out as a quick test…

…but thought I would share. :slight_smile:


Kewl! :sunglasses:


Awesome, I saw a similar design on Pinterest of all places, I have been curious to try it. Thanks for sharing.

I think the middle piece could be eliminated by sandwiching the right piece between 2 solid boards glued top and bottom. The left piece would then slide in and lock. Could make a nice jewelry clasp.
