no previous part Part 1 of A box project, for December series Part 2: Finger joints, and a glue up... »

Had a stash of Ash scraps to process….some wound up right in the burn pile…others were resawn dow to 1/2” thick…

Some were ripped down a bit….as 6” wide stuff was a bit rough to resaw….with a 8” tablesaw….

And there was a stash of very thin cut-offs…..tray dividers?

maybe some for a lid? used a jointer plane, to make a few glue joints fit better..

had a few boards that were a tad uneven…thickness wise…ran them through again to remove the excess thin stuff…had one such strip fall over, just barely catch the saw blade….and come flying back at me…

And bounced off of me stiff upper lip…

Anyhoo..this is the last of the panels that was glued up…

Out of 4 panels. letting these sit a while…maybe they will stay flat?

Finger/box joints to connect these into a box of some sort,,,,add a bottom and a lid…and a tray I can lift out

Stay tuned..

Quarter inch ash, if it’s straight, can make nice little drawers. Or tiny boxes. I’ve even used 3/16, though that’s about the smallest I generally work with except as a floating panel…

- You could have used the bandsaw for resawing.

- when assembled in the form of a box, wood has a lot of strength. A six bottle French wine crate (nailed) is made ou of 3/8” maritime pine for the sides and 1/4” for the bottom and top. Six bottle is about 16~17 Lb.
Although I would not put 16 Lb on a 1/4” shelf.

Since today is Monday…shop was closed, today. Will try to start back in Tuesday…I hope. Too many errands to run, today…..

Bandsaw I have does not do resaw very well….even worse with the 3/16” blade I have in it…..

I like working with 3/8” thick Ash….even better when it is 1/2” thick….1/4” is about as thin as I like to go…

It’s a 9ppi cross cut saw….not quite a rip saw.

Maybe some other time?
