« Part 4: Hardware, re-do a lid, start on the tray Part 5 of Aromatic Red Cedar Box, from scraps series no next part

Was not the easiest thing….thought I could hand saw the fingers….saw wasn’t fine enough…moved over to the bandsaw…

Had just started on the other end of this side piece…..BANG! Blade in the bandsaw broke…grrrr. Had a scroll saw around the shop, somewhere….hmm…

Used the first set of fingers as a pattern..

Hmm, might just work…got the other 3 corners done..

Tested the fit to the base/bottom ….next, a handle

Scroll saw was still on the bench, and one more task before I put it back on the shelf..

Handle needed fingers on each end…to fit into a couple through mortises…

Was finally able to get some glue and clamps done..

Let this sit a day, then glue on the bottom…

Let that sit a day…came back today…put all the clamps away…

Long sides were cleaned up, ends were sanded flush…areas a plane couldn’t reach..

Ok…Box needed 2 strips glued into the bottom…makes 3 compartments, and..

A place for the tray to sit on..

And we have a Padlock? I guess this little Project is done..

Thanks for looking in…
