Hey I am pleased to say not only was my grandson pleased. I am pleased that it came out as what he and I drew on the paper and the few details. I did ,after he left ,the glue up of the 2 bottom boards and the 3 boards for the top and so the next morning he got to see a larger board and then we drew the frame on those boards. and the projection on the base I did show him 3 samples of bottoms to choose from and he liked the projection idea. So that was a draw it and later I cut it dow...

Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. #6: Grandsons..box build #5

07-20-2018 12:46 AM by oldguy2 | 2 comments »

And the box is looking good. The top has beveled edges and we tried the block plane but the end grain went better with the belt sander. we did a little then checked progress. On the bottom we had drawn the box outline and allowed for an extra almost 3/16 projection. and I had him sand the extra to the line for the projection. Hardwood made this slow but that helped with not removing too much and checking the progress. We also did a practice piece. I keep telling him th...

More tools in the shop #6: Designing a Parametric Pencil Box with Sliding Lid in Fusion 360

07-10-2018 07:11 PM by Plasmon360 | 0 comments »

My best friend just had a baby girl. I am very happy for him. I wanted to give her some wooden toys as a gift. I want to put all the toys in a pencil box and ship it. To make the pencil box, I first made a fusion 360 model of the pencil box. I use rabbet joints for this model as it is easier for me to do in my shop (in future, will make one with box joints). In fusion 360, I can add parameters such as box dimensions, thickness, rabbet depth, in parameters table and when any of these param...

Just for Fun... #99: Might I Miter?

11-29-2017 01:02 AM by littlecope | 11 comments »

So there we were, walking through Sears, looking for some clothing…As is usual with a Sears visit, I ended up wandering to the tool department; specifically, their Miter Saw line up…From small to large, it’s always been fun for me to imagine getting one of those, and to imagine making Mitered box corners…Debbie came up behind me and asked if I liked any of them, and then further fueled the desire for one by asking if I needed one, adding that “Christmas is coming...

Tutorial: Installing Side Rail Hinges

10-06-2017 09:01 PM by Ron Stewart | 3 comments »

If, like me, you are new to box making, you may be apprehensive about installing hinges. The number of options is large and bewildering and, with hinge installation being one of the final steps in the construction process, fear of ruining a nearly completed box is a valid concern. I’m not experienced enough to help you wade through all of the hinge options (Roger Bean’s excellent blog post Some Thoughts on Box Hinges might help with that), but I can can tell you how to inst...

Shop Projects #1: Air Filter

10-02-2017 01:15 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

One of the downsides to a small attic shop is the crazy amount of dust in the air. I have some windows I can open while it is nice out, but even that only has a limited effect. After browsing the internet I decided it was time to make an air cleaner. I did not want to make a major investment in a fan, and the typical box fan was just not powerful enough in my opinion. We use a Lasko Wind machine in the living room and bedroom and these fans are GREAT!! I happened to catch an end of the sea...

Oeben Boxes #3: The First Actual Box Begins

08-27-2017 12:33 AM by shipwright | 18 comments »

I’ve been spending way too much time enjoying my fine little sailboat this summer and really haven’t been in the shop very much at all. However this past week I decided that something had to be done with the Oeben marquetry pieces so I started the first of four boxes. The plan is to start with a very simple jewellery box and make each successive box more complex than the last. This is one of the challenges of cutting in piece by piece and having four copies of the marquetry. Th...
