« Part 8: 7/6/12 Part 9 of Journal of my wood working series Part 10: 7/17/12 »

Spent several hours in the shop today and figured some thing out. I suck at woodworking but I don’t care.
The pictures are of the box I am making. The box is bigger then it was suppose to be and the lid was to small. I didn’t have any more of that wood so I had to use a different kind. I thought they were the same but I guess not. So I cut the lid in half added the darker wood and made a handle of sort. I decided to trim it out with the darker wood as you can see it’s not quite done yet maybe tomorrow i can get back out there. I am going to surf around and find some router tips but honesty I think i just need to make a real router table and get a decent router. The one I have now is an old crafstman mounted under the bench my RAS is in rough 3/4 plywood top and another 3/4 piece for a fence. Oh and the bits I got from fingerhut. lol

-- My theroy in wood working will be. If I'm not enjoying doing it i won't do it.
