A miter box method by Martyn can be done by using portable router. Here are the pictures that show my way:


This was cut pieces using saw!


Two layers of masking tape. Notice that I already applied the finish… dead flat lacquer but it became glossy after 5 coats.


Using just a small router proves it can be done. Guide can be nailed.

Finally, the lid is done!

Till next time…..

Here is another design on the table…

Have a nice day!

Splendid work, Bert. Yet another way to do it, well done. The box is looking really good as well.

THANKS. Hard to use the tablet, the other way using touch typing with only one finger. Its just like the way on using the handsaw. What is best for the other half… a real ebony that will be 3mm thick. I still have some.
