I was inspired by an LJ’r asking help to make this profile. I thought it was a great piece that might sell at a craft show. The only way to know is to MAKE MY OWN. I use a modified #35 to make the hollow profile. Before I started with the round I scribed a line where I wanted to start,used my snipe to deepen the groove, then used a 1 1/4” width round to finish of the upper profile. A bead plane was used for bottom trim, The backside has a 1/8 dado to accept the bottom of the box.
GALOOT ? NO !
I cut the miters on a power miter saw, the inside groove to accept the lid was made on router table.
After I completed all the cuts I assembled it, using pneumatic pin nailer. NEXT time I am going to fasten corners with wooden dowels, Nail holes in pine are hard to hide !
Thanks for looking !

Thanks people.
Ha, it took me longer to make the fence for my OLD #35. I had the hollow profile on it from another project. The fence made it easier to use. Threaded some Walnut, turned some nuts, drilled some holes. As you can see the treads on one of the arms is quite crooked. But it worked and now I am off to build some more !

I probably missed a blog of yours when you talked about making threads, but what tools or method did you
use to make those threaded rods and nuts? Glad to see that you are not only addicted to planes, but that
you like to use and repair the old beauties also. Thank you for sharing. Before I forget, very nice box and
woodwork.

Bluepine: I never did my own blog about my thread making toys. But here are pictures of the TEAM. JUST like real life, We can never get the family together for 1 picture at the same time …...LOL
My short threads turn out okay, it is the longer ones that do a bend——or two.
