If you folks recall, I was having some Fun with a new box project, a sort-of “Striped” Box… One thing I’ve not found, in the recent move, is more time! So it’s been slow going…But I finally managed to cut the second panel’s stripes, and to cut the top from the bottom of this thing…There was a problem with the top, and while I was figuring out what, exactly, I was going to do about it, I went ahead and made the hinge for it. In keeping with th...
The week before Christmas, one of the waitresses at work told me of a customer who had come in and asked about the Signs and the Comments Box in the Restaurant… Who made them? Can the person make more or different ones?It seems the lady wanted a sign made for Christmas…Beverly the waitress told her who I am, and when I work, and that she could speak to me on Friday… But the Lady never called… I told my Girl Debbie about it, and how I would have told the Lady that it wa...
I haven’t been around much lately because I’ve been, guess what, busy!!The work on the Cherry and Imbuia box and trays was completed…Now I’m in the middle of applying finish to it… It’s slow going, but it’s coming along…For a little break in the action, and another chance for fun and adventure, I decided to try out an idea I had a while ago… If anyone recalls, at one point, making all the shaped “Finger Lifts” and Hinges, I tho...
Of course, working in the Restaurant Biz, I mean the last few days… I ended up getting in about 9-10 hours on this latest box, and except for some small detail work, it’s just about ready for some finishing…If you’ll recall, I left off Wednesday having glued the hinges in place…I began yesterday morning by pinning them into place with wooden dowel, and cutting off the excess with my trusty “Poor Man’s” Japanese Saw. Notice the finely crafted han...
In the last episode it was decided that, because this Box is a little bigger than usual, I’d be making some trays for it. I guess I’m still anxious to use the new toy, because I sized the wood I’ll be using last… first!!After Re-sawing another scrap of the Cherry, I thinned it down on the Jointer to about 3/16”. These will be for the bottoms of the two trays…With the Imbuia top, and Cherry sides on the outer Box, I’m going with Imbuia sides and Cherry...
Almost a week ago (A Week!) I left off with the latest box, a Cherry and Imbuia type of thing, finally together…As has been discussed here and everyday, everywhere, it’s been HOT!! It’s hard to get motivated in the heat… I actually resorted to putting in a second air conditioner, one that I had picked up on sale two years ago and was keeping as a “Emergency Back-Up” for my main one…It’s been a life saver… But anyway, back to the box!! The ...
Who’d have thought it, but I’m making another box!!I made the sides out of a little of the cherry my Parent’s neighbor was kind enough to give me…The bad news is, the band saw only accepts wood under 5 1/2” thick and the original piece was almost 7” wide…The good news is, my boxes are small ones, so I cut about 1 3/4” off of it, and I’ll use that to make the hinges… I guess you can see why this was a cut-off…But the subject tod...
