So do I it just sounds different.
Did it fit? The bottom shell into the top shell. Well sort of. It was tighter than a very tight thing. A light (yes thats how most of the world spells it) sanding later and it was a comfortable, moving, fit
You get a vacuum effect when you remove it as the air can’t easily get in to fill the increasing volume. To this end I route grooves along the sides, vertically, to allow an influx of air.
Problem solved. Next the mitred pedestal. Walnut cut to shape 12mm x 6mm.
This is the ideal time to route a bevelled corner off with this
This is cut into four pieces and mitred on the trusty old Mitring Jig
Set up like this the sides should come out the perfect length.
All glued on. The base looks a bit of a mess
So applied some stick on baise.
Once the inside top and outside bottom are polished up (wax) the two halves slide together with a satisfying slight whoosh of air. If you want to see what the whole thing looks like you’ll have to wait for the project post. Not long.
Be seeing you.
