Part 1: The Prototype

09-17-2010 02:21 PM by WoodSimplyMade | 1 comment »

I posted a few days ago the prototype design I came up with for a men’s valet station. These were to be prizes to be presented at an upcoming golf tournament in November. I asked you all for input and comments on the design and of course I can always count on you guys just for that. The feedback and suggestions were great and have allowed me to modify the design to make it even better. For those of you who have not seen my submission here is the prototype that I had you all comment o...

Part 4: Last steps of construction

As promised the final steps to making the box. First thing I did is cut the lid by measuring the sides and lengths of the box compartment.Once I had this cut out I ran two passes through the router to make my grooves for the inlay wood. Next while the router was still warmed up I ran the box through the router table at a 45 Degree angle to make the splines in the miters. I dont have a dedicated jig built yet so excuse the poor man’s feeder. Once this was done I glue...
