« Part 17: Dump box rear trim Part 18 of The dump truck series Part 19: The dump box tailgate »

I made two times this box. The first ended up in the trash. The pictures are used are from the first and the second, but the creative process is hopefully clear.

Nice work dutchy!!!
Every one has a different ways of doing things and has different tools to work with, for me if the plans have one long straight edge I like to cut the plans on the line and glue the pattern to the long straight edge then if there are any good corners I can cut them with my sliding table on my small table saw.
When I’m saying this I mean for the bigger parts not some of the little tiny stuff. lol

I should add that I use skill saw blades on my table saw with very thin blades. I get a very clean and smooth cut..

Love all your how tos your really into it today and thanks!!!

Bruce you are right by saying that every one has different ways of doing things. You may have noriced that I,m only using my table saw as a bench. I use almost always the bandsaw and have a very heavy sander. And bisides I get the sandpaper for free. The broken industriel ones from 1300×1800mm 80 grit. From this piece I can make 6 disk pieces.

BTW: Can I tempt you to also make how to?

That’s part of it I have a very small disk sander so sanding the long stuff just doesn’t work for me.
Many times I make comments more for other readers than for you and hope you don’t mind.
If I remember right you have one out standing table saw but really not to good for the very small parts.
The sander is much safer and you can sneak up on a line a lot easier.
I’ve been noticing you using your band saw in a lot of places where I use the table saw.
I really haven’t used my band saw much but am starting to keep it in mind for use more often.
I think I need to get a better blade with a finer tooth for the small stuff.

I started making some how toes but quit using my apple computer which made it easy to put comments in the pictures like you do.
Since I’ve switched back over to a windows computer I haven’t yet found a program to easily add these comments.
The paint program is garbage for this.
