« Part 2: Rainbow Box Progress Part 3 of DESIGNS FOR WOOD STRIPS series Part 4: 90 degrees bend by cut and paste »

Finally, I was able to work today for a half day even though it is Sunday. Light job, router work and some handsawing and planing…

Then nothing to say today but just look at the pictures…..
THIS IS WHERE I STOPPED….. as you go down it will be the past..

Dry fitting the mountains (quarter rounds) on both top corner. Used only jigsaw, sanding and files to fit…

The white sky (white board which is from a pallet but it is not a pine. Just dont know what wood is that.) is fitted and glued…

The making of the sky….. It is sunny day and full of white clouds….

The circle outer radius of the rainbow. I used router straight bit 1/8 to cut the arc. Thanks to Rand Lowery for the bit that is really strong…. Just 3 passes and done. I inserted melamine 1/4 to be used as my guide in doing the sky. Please note that I am using 6 mm threaded insert as the center. The melamine too was inserted with a insert when I cut the sky and adjusted my radius to take out the kerf of 1/8. Easy life and it fits like a ring in my finger. No sanding only on the edge part.

I NEED MARTYN ON THE NEXT EPISODE…. The beveled corner is the difficult part to do. I can not use miter saw. The only way is to route this. I have to take care of the center handle that will not be a part of the bevel joint.

BETTER WATCH THE NEXT EPISODE because I will be doing different bending of wood to make a bevel cut… I hope it will be good and will not be over the rainbows end….. till next.
