Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #2: A Sketchup Model to Make it Easier (I hope)

11-04-2011 07:25 AM by shipwright | 10 comments »

I have had several people PM me who were having trouble with the details of the integral hinge in this blog so I’ve done a sketchup to try to clarify it. I hope I haven’t just made it more confusing. If this doesn’t clear it up, I’ll just keep trying. Here’s the link: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model.html?id=49b42e2ce1f6da5152d9fc61873164a1 I’ve added the sketchup link to the first blog page so it’s all in one place and easy to find...

Building a mitered box to hold my feeler gauges

02-15-2016 04:35 PM by Marty Backe | 7 comments »

I like to keep my feeler gauges loose (not attached to a ring, etc) but then they spread about in my tool drawer. So I made this small box from 1/8” Baltic Birch plywood. Here’s the build video. Of particular interest will be the small parts miter table saw crosscut sled that I use with a special attachment that allows me to accurately and safely cut the small pieces of wood.
