Something with an "R" #5: Stands

06-14-2015 03:37 PM by sras | 6 comments »

A big part of the challenge in displaying all 6 sides is the stand. . I spent a lot of time designing a stand that shared elements from the font. It took several iterations to get something that looked natural and part of the theme of the box. You can see the final outline here. In the end, it just felt out of place. The assembly was too big and it drew attention away from the box. So, I set aside that design (and all the hours that invested in it) and came up with something simpl...

Something with an "R" #4: Box Assembly

06-14-2015 02:38 PM by sras | 5 comments »

The last picture from the previous post is a good place to start for this segment. After the inlays were done, each piece is rabbeted on all 4 sides. The bloodwood edging also has a rabbet. Since the joint is visible from both sides and I had a little bit of variation in the rabbets, I labeled each side for a wide or narrow joint. Each piece of edging was carefully fitted for a tight joint. Then the edging was glued on.This is a good time to point out that the joinery plan calls for ...

Something with an "R" #3: Inlaid Letters

06-13-2015 11:38 PM by sras | 11 comments »

For the letter pattern, I started with a Medusa font. I had to modify it quite a bit to work with my 1/8” router bit. . I then sliced some veneer from the wenge. The veneer cuts were just over 1/16” and ended up at about 0.040” after sanding. I let the wenge be a little thicker. . I printed out the pattern in reverse and glued it to what would be the back side of the veneer. The process was: . 1. Cut the pattern with my scroll saw and cleaned it up with som...

Something with an "R" #1: Concept creation

06-13-2015 04:48 PM by sras | 9 comments »

Sorry – no pictures on this one. They will show up in the next post. Just a brief introduction to this project. . My brother and sister-in-law have a gift exchange we do. It is not tied to any holiday or schedule. When we are ready to exchange – it happens. If not, wait until the next time we get together. . One requirement is that the gift is handmade (at least mostly). Another is that it follow a theme. These are drawn from an idea box after the previous gifts are ex...

Making boxes. #2: Two towers of boxes.

Now half way through the order for 45 boxes… update now 47 on order… This is what 20 boxes start out as… The camphor began as a slab… after dressing and resawing to just under 10 mm the boards are cut in a specific sequence to ensure the grain runs all 4 corners. Dovetail joints of course… the tails have been cut… After the pins are cut the carcasses are assembled… ready for the grooves to be cut inside top and bottom… to receive ...

Kitchen Utensil Box #3: Cutting the joinery

05-31-2015 02:16 AM by JSOvens | 2 comments »

So here comes one of the more exciting parts of the project: the cutting of the joinery. If you saw the first post in this series, you would have seen the interlocking mortise and tenon style joinery I planned to use. Since I accidentally cut the Padauk posts 1/2” too short, I had to redo the sizing for the mortises and tenons. To make the rest easier to follow, I will repost the image of the test run here: I began with the mortises, since they are generally easier. I have not ma...

Mobile Assembly Table

05-23-2015 06:53 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I decided to replace the tear -down workstation in my garage shop. It was not mobile and it became more stationary than a tear-down temporary assembly table. I feel that in my garage shop everything should mobile if it is on the floor. The exceptions are some storage racks and the sheets storage area. The five gallon buckets that captures my wood scraps should one day be replaced with a scrap mobile rack. Until then they camp under my hardwood wall rack. I did some searches for an a...

Kitchen Utensil Box #2: Milling the components

05-19-2015 06:16 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Hello again, I left off last time with the design and materials for the kitchen utensil box. I started by milling the Padauk for the four corner posts. These posts are 1” square, while the piece of Padauk I purchased is 8/4. To avoid excess waste, I decided to resaw off about 5/8” for later use. I primarily used my table saw with a thin kerf blade, but since the board was about 6” wide, and my max blade height is 2”, I had to complete the operation by hand. Below is...

Kitchen Utensil Box #1: Introduction

04-13-2015 06:08 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Hello everyone, It’s been a while since my last post regarding my mini hand tool cabinet, which is still under construction (truthfully, I haven’t really made any progress since my last post at the link above). I became very busy at the end of last year defending my Ph. D. thesis. That’s right, you may now call me “Doctor”! Moving on to the matters at hand, as you can see from the photo below, we have a kitchen drawer which is way overcrowded with large kit...
