Well, sanded down some of the fingers that were sticking up..
After which, I ran a small combo square and a pencil around
Trying to land somewhere besides right on a pin. Plane was to saw the lid part from the box’s bottom. Handsaw would be a bit too rough on things, and get into a bind. Bandsaw? A bit hard to do, and see where I was cutting. Yard sale item might just work…
I cut one end first, to get the hang of using this heavy saw. Then cut the long sides. I kept the box in the vise, to help out. I then cut the last end….just a hair of a bind at the end…..and wound up with this.
In the last blog, I had made an insert for the lid. Time to install that in place, and nail it off..
Nails yes, glue no. Clamped the two pieces back into the vise, had some small hinges to install
Small? Well, I used a small nail to make pilot holes. Try using thing screws..BEFORE taking the BP Meds..
I also finished the sanding. A sanding filler for around all them fingers was just glue, then bandsaw sawdust
Leveled all the fingers that were a tad too long. Decided to load the box up, to see how things fit..
Well, the 78 and all it’s parts a re snug, the @39 as well. Stuck the Ohio toolworks plane into it’s new home…
Everything seems to fit. Keepers even clear the planes in the bottom.
Closed the lid..
And added a the first coat of the Brew Finish
May need to craft a label for this one. I still need to find a latch, of some sort, and a final finish. Wood working part of this project is about done….thanks for looking in..
