I had a funny feeling about this.
I first made a mask to put over the board to measure it up for cutting into a net for the box.
This started as a CAD drawn outline printed over two sheets of heavy (160 gm/m) A4 (nearest to ‘Ansi A’ I think). I overlaid this on the board. Taping it down (clear tape).
Initially all looked well. As you can see it was not to be. Whilst 3 out of 4 corners worked from the point of view of patterns meeting on a box corner the one at top right was wrong.. I had made the Sycamore 3mm too long. There would be a miss-match at that corner. What to do?
I refused to panic and followed my planned course and began marking out the outlines with masking tape.
Cut through the clear tape and freed the mask
Then took a closer look at the problem.
All I need to do is remove one piece of Padauk, one piece of Ebony, Cut down the offending 3mm of sycamore, glue on new pieces and re sand/finish.
Well I’ve started
Suffice it to say it went well. I’ll leave it there for tonight.
Be seeing you.
