Rumbling and Correcting Mistakes.

04-06-2013 03:39 PM by BertFlores58 | 2 comments »

Here is the progress of the tumbling variation box. Quite interesting as I made a lot of correction on the previous mistakes. Lippings on the lid.Notice that a small squaring block is clamp inside. This is to hold the lippings in place aligned to the inner side of lid. This serves also as stopper. Lippings on the side.This is much easier than the lid. I can use the magic of masking tape to hold it. Note that the bottom board is not fix yet. After planing, sanding, and routing...

Shaped Wooden Hinges #3: "Bear Claw" Style Hinges

08-09-2012 11:51 AM by littlecope | 16 comments »

Some folks had expressed interest in the way to make these… this is how I do them…It’s going to be a long one so, settle in, make sure that you’re in your comfy chair, and with your favorite beverage within reach…I’m currently making two small boxes and have the first one up to the point where its nearly ready to close up. So my attention turned to the two pairs of hinges I’ll need…Since the top and bottom panels are Mahogany, I thought it wo...

Just for Fun... #63: A Tale of Two Hinges...

06-25-2012 01:29 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

I spent the better part of a day, almost two weeks ago, cogitating and musing on an idea I had for another set of wooden hinges… The idea was to make a simple set, in the style of what I’ve begun calling “Finger Hinges”...This time I wanted two smaller ones, to put on either side of the box, rather than a “piano” style across the whole back… I also wanted them to thin almost to a point, as the fingers extended… I had a very hard time visua...

42 #6: Late as in the late Dent, Arthur Dent

03-31-2012 12:16 PM by BritBoxmaker | 20 comments »

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...

42 #5: Disaster Area

03-28-2012 07:24 PM by BritBoxmaker | 12 comments »

Its been a mixed experience, today. Some things went well and others went….......well not so well.It looked incredibly complex to mark up all the little bits to be trimmed off so I went an easier route. The external dimensions of the box (well the first three anyway) are 42mm, cubed.With 3mm thick walls this means the inside width and length are 36mm. So I made up a former block 36mm square by a bit longer and placed it inside the box This holds the box square, allowing (w...

42 #4: Magrathea (Inside the legendary planet building planet)

03-27-2012 08:05 PM by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

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...

42 #2: One sunny afternoon

03-25-2012 01:43 PM by BritBoxmaker | 12 comments »

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...

42 #1: The Answer

03-24-2012 04:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 20 comments »

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...

Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #1: I could kick myself

06-23-2011 07:26 AM by shipwright | 58 comments »

A few months ago I spent many many hours trying to perfectly align a set of “box joint hinges” for my project ” A Little Cabinetree” After I finally got them working I installed them on the edges of the MDF sides and doors and then veneered over the whole works. The only good part was that there were enough left over prototype parts that I could make a hinge for my next project from the cast-offs Then this week I was making a tea box for a friend and when...
