Continuing on the boat bed project, I have to now make a lid for the toy box.
First I trace the shape of the toy box onto a 1/2” material. Rough cut it, screw it down and then use a trimming bit on the router to trim it flush. I use some templates that I made a few years ago to make the trim. I’ll then use a rabbiting bit and cut a groove in the inside of the trim the thickness of the bead board. A round over is used on the top edges.
I put together two of the three sides of the trim using a Festool Domonio. Leaving the bottom trim loose I trace the design onto my bead board. Cut the bead board and then put it all together.
