« Part 2: Splitting the cylinder. Part 3 of CYLINDER MAKING series Part 4: Wooden Hinge for Cylinder... Is it possible? »

The LIPPING.

Using my circular cutting jig for the router, I was able to fabricate a special rings that will serve as the lippings. It was several passes from two faces of the rings. the Lips has to be rabetted in such way that it will fit in all aspects. Here it is the final glue up…. not sanded yet.

The last phase will be next week. THE HINGE and the FINISH. Nearly done.


THE ORIGINAL PLAN IS BETTER….

I earlier planned to use strips of wood (semilar with flat popsicle stick) to be the side instead of these skewers as shown above. I have made additional circular ends so I constructed the original plan. This is the second time of making cylinder so I am avoiding those problems I got from the first job. So it became better.



Some points I learned:
1) The veneer (inner wall) was cut diagonally so there will be continuity of strength while gluing.
2) After I finished the gluing the strips, I have to detached from the ends (lid and bottom circles) and then check out for the inside part and make tight while the glue is still dry. (I noticed that if there are no air in the glue, it dries so slow so I took out the masking tape and press them to remove the excess glue.

A present, I have already sanded the sides… look like a pipe… I am happy with the second one.
Till next weekend. I can do my hobby only weekends… Probably, I can do some veneering..

God bless and Thanks,

-- Bert

Bert,

Most of us can do square boxes, some can do amazing square boxes.

I am learning as You go, to do round boxes as You go through this tutorial.

Thanks for sharing. – Len

Thanks. The one that triggered me to do the round or cylinder type is the difficulty of doing it. Challenge is always there during the construction. Rounding the edges and curve sidewalls can be done by gyration or rotating the cutting bit from a center. Easy when you make with lathe machine, but my target is to use only what is available. That makes the challenge.

Hi Bert
I apologize for being late to the party but I’m caught up now.
This is really a cool idea.
Your imagination knows no bounds and your courage to attempt anything you can dream up is just as admirable.
...................and then there’s the fact that you always succeed.

I can tell you are having fun with this.

I am really thankful for both of you Martyn and Paul. You are always behind the scene… Martyn made a round one with bottle mold that is one who triggered me while Paul never ceases to amaze me about the capabilities of veneers that is why I used the veneer. If only I could cut veneer like Paul. I will do this on the side.

or this….

Thanks,

-- Bert

Thanks David,
You can see the rabetting on the rims… that’s your style that I copied only that it is now applied upside down and circular motion. I will have a long way though to have fully your skill cutting pieces for 10 boxes in an hour. My next challenge probably will have to do with starboard side and port side… ???... just leftwards and rightwards too.

You can do it Bert. If I can, you can.
I’m doing some curved marquetry glue-up right now and it turns out it’s not so tough.
I have full confidence that anything you set your mind to, you can do and do well.

That looks easy enough to do if you make yourself a template for the curves first, Bert. Go on have a go.
