« Part 1: Starting Out Part 2 of Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift series Part 3: Connecting The Pieces »

Since I just so happen to have the exact bible on hand that I plan to give, I took some quick measurements and estimated the box size. The final dimensions should be 10” long by 7” wide and 2 3/4” tall.

I started out by cutting down the lumber to approximately 11” strips and ripped them to 3” long. The picture in the previous posting was what I started with and the picture below is the near end result of the pieces.

My planer has brand new blades in it and did a wonderful job of cleaning up the boards. Several of them had bows so I ran out and bought a used jointer… it needs some love and restoration but it was able to do the job just fine. Each piece was taken down to exactly 1/2” and are reasonably flat… at least within the margin of error for this project.

Look at the pretty wood! ( Not all pieces are shown )

-- We need more banjo!
