« Part 2: The Plan Part 3 of BALL IN A BOX series Part 4: Design for the ball inside the box »

Just to give you a progress… the lid is done. I was not able to make photos because I am pre-occupied. Well here it is…..

My next plan is to have the other part (bottom) plus sides are to be constructed separately. The bottom will contain the ball.

It was a nice adventure using a compass attachment to my router. This was constructed the same as Martyn’s EZ mitre and also my plan will be an upright world as this is patterned with Martyn’s inverted world.
Thanks Martyn.. I was glad the arcs joined together exactly fitted and it took me a hardtime on alligning the angles on straight lines. I improved a bit on using the counter sunk bit used in router by double passing it (just lifting a bit the router in inclined form. I don’t want to adjust the setting). I also make a deeper cut on the bevel… it almost reach the masking tape on the other end.

Thanks for viewing….

It is always such a pleasure to see your projects, Bert! Another great job on this one. I can’t wait to see the bottom. :)

Looking good, Bert. You’re on course for success. Sometimes you have to screw up all your courage into a ball and throw it at the problem. Worth it though, isn’t it?
