I worked late enough last night I didn’t get to updating the blog until this morning.
There were a couple pictures still on the camera for the prior day’s work. I got the template done and located it on the lid.
After a few passes with the router, I had a recess. The lid is only 5/16 thick to start with and the recess is 3/16 deep.
I trimmed the ironwood to size and rounded the corners. Then I applied glue and clamped them up for the night.
The last thing I did was rip up some strips of pear for dividers (yeah, I decided to upgrade to a jewelry box).
When I got home from work yesterday, the first thing I did was trim the tops with a 2 1/2 degree bevel to enable a slightly domed lid.
Then sand down through the burn marks.
And sand until the surface is clean.
I then turned my attention to the divider strips. I sanded them to a uniform thickness using my disc sander . I then cut them to a final width.
The last step for the evening was to cut another piece of ironwood for a detail inside the box (more on that later).
