To life the Universe and everything. As all you readers of Douglas Adams’ Hitch-Hikers’s Guide to the Galaxy will know. For me it is, as well as that, a quest for yet smaller wooden hinges. Don’t Panic (as the Guide says on it’s cover, in big, friendly, letters) I am prepared to fail on this one. This (lid removed for clarity) is what I am planning to achieve A, cubic, reversible box with sides that are 42mm long and high by 3mm thick (1.65” by just und...
Hello again. Now the ‘boards’ you saw in part one were oversize at 45mm wide, purposefully so. Its easier to glue up and cut. There is a small allowance for error, if one piece isn’t square with the next layer. So, first things first, cut out six of each wood 45mm square. I always cut a spare just in case of screw ups. The first shaping work will be done with two layers stuck together Spares to the right. The sycamore is glued to the Sapele with superglu...
Here we are again. This time its time to cut the fingers on the two remaining pieces, F and B. B the back piece also has the hinge fingers for the lid. Basically offer up the relevant side, in this case Left (already cut) to Front and mark the cutouts with the knife blade. Do this for both sides of Front and Back (plus the top of the back piece) and cut out all the hinge fingers.Use the same method as before for cutting the single walnut piece for both F and B. Then slide the single wa...
Its supposed to be a threat, I was never any good at those.- Slartibartfast Well I am. This method is not working. 1. The small (1mm square x 6mm long) piece that retains the hinge pin falls out. Remember I have used CA (superglue) on these. 2. On the ‘grain following’ rear/top hinge 1mm is too thin to hold. I could re-enforce with a 0.5mm piece, cross grained to this but problem 1. still remains. This means the end of this attempt at 3mm thick wooden hin...
This is going a lot quicker than the last version. The pin groove went well as did the rounding and bottom groove not a lot to show really. So. So long and thanks for all the fish. The project will be posted shortly Be seeing you.
