Pasochnitsa build is described in previous blog entries.
And now it’s time to make a storage box for it.
In this build I tried some techniques new for me, including making dovetails, making sliding cap, using shooting board and router plain.
First of all I measured the inner size of the box
I had a pretty nice ash board awaiting its time. And I decided to use it for the build. But at first I made a simple shooting board
With its help it was very easy to make square boards
The second thing I had to make was a dovetail marking jig
It may be used in two positions for comfortable marking near edges of a board. The second position is
The marking itself
and a jig for marking to hold two boards in right position
I marked and sawed dovetails in two boards at once.
Next few steps were not documented.
And I got the box
And after linseed oil
So the pasochnitsa found a new home and I learned how to make dovetails (wow! I became a man!)
