I am doing the second box. Luckily, photos can be taken to minimize explaining.
Making of Hinges and also the top. The box is nearly complete so I will start on what is to be done.
The hinge is made up of wood that I had a slot made independently then glued some pieces back in place.
One of the black hinge was broken so I need to replace that…
You can also see the middle part of the hinge have an offset insert.
Remove the pin then complete the missing ebony. Let the pin be in place when you glue the black pieces. Dont bend the pin. When assembling the hinge, Centering is the key to ha a proper alignment.
I have to wait till this is totally dry then sand the protrusions. This will take overnight.
Cutting Machine. The most useful mitering saw I ever had. You can see that I had repaired it using a molave wood into the other end. The previous was made from cast aluminum, see the back side. After I repaired it. The alignment of the saw blade became perfect. I also used this for cutting the rhombus.
If you notice. I made the fence out of wood so I can nail a stop piece on the other end. This will cut repeated
I can make the third design.. with these prepared stocks.. but I am looking for ebony.
Till next time …
Have a nice weekend.
