After finishing my first box I knew that I wanted to make a bunch more. However, after I finished the second round, I ended up giving them all away as presents before I photographed them. These two are the next batch, the first with my new Ridgid r4510, replacing my Ryobi BTS12, and the difference is drastic in the accuracy of the miters (though I still plan on building a dedicated sled in the future). I decided that I don’t like installing hardware so I went with the cedar lined strategy instead. I will soon be attempting a production batch of 12 or so of this design with various woods to build up a reserve of gifts for future occasions. Anyways, the specs:
Roughly 7’’ L x 4.5’’ W x 2.5’’ T
First one is Walnut and Ebony with some spalted? birch.
Second is mahogany and hickory with luan plywood from the bigbox (don’t know what wood this really is, is luan a wood?)
Also, this is the first batch I got to use my new branding iron courtesy of the girlfriend, it really adds a touch of class and personalization.
Thanks for looking, all comments/critiques/criticisms appreciated.
