Secrets of the String Box Revealed #6: Secret Soss

08-30-2010 05:15 AM by newTim | 6 comments »

While I still plan to do a series on my experiences with various box hinges, I thought I’d go ahead and post how I installed Soss hinges on the current string box project. I plan to include the usual step-by-step process, but I think most folks will get the idea from these pictures. The sides of this box are a little over 3/4” wide so I’m using the Soss 203 hinges which are 1/2” X 1 3/4. These hinges require eight, count ‘em, eight! mortises. And they all h...

My brother

Oh, how my heart weeps, though I know in God’s arms he sleeps; So many things we don’t understand; so always remember it’s in His hands. So blessed to have you in my life; no longer will you have discomfort or strife; Peace and comfort to your wife and son; I love you Danny Boy, you were the one. My cousin posted this on Facebook. This is about my brother. I lost another one last Friday night to illness. Three years ago my brother Gary died at 48 from a massive heart a...

1950s church pews #2: wonky box too

08-30-2010 01:51 AM by scottb | 5 comments »

the little oak version of its bigger brother: This one started its life as a pew in a Manchester, NH church. (They opted to replace their pews, c. 1950, for chairs that could be rearranged as needed, and contacted the original builder in the Guild of NH woodworkers to donate the wood. I was the fortunate recipient of two 12’ long pews. Original post on the subject. ) When I dismantled them, one of the seats split along a glue line leaving me these to ponder what to do with. Lu...

There is great need for a sarcasm font. 5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? 6. Was learning cursive really necessary? 7. Map Quest reall...
