Coffee ceremony wood box from grained wood.(With a little help from Google and a Japanese friend, that don’t speak English).He made me laugh by saying; but Mads, there are no Japanese coffee ceremony, I’m fully aware of this and it’s not ment as an insult, but as a celebration, to the Japanese customs and people. Finally the project is finished and I...

Coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stoveScraping, lye and lacquer. Hi there,Time for an update, on the Japanese inspired Coffee ceremony box. I decided to go for the lye treatment, with white pigment in it, to lighten the wood and to keep it from getting too yellow over time. This part was actually quite a few months back now, but I have been a busy bee and happy monkey, in my wee allotment house, where lots of projects in the garden and fixing the house, is taking all the e...

Finger / box joint boxes and drawers

03-03-2020 12:14 AM by mafe | 12 comments »

Finger / box joint boxes and drawersWith Festool VS600 router jig. Yes I finally got the Festool jig up and running as some of you might have seen on the Coffee ceremony shrine blog, it had been hanging on my wall for almost a year and somehow I just did not have a project for it, so I never got it into use…(I got it at a crazy prize at app 1/3 of the sales price used, so that was why I bought it). I have to admit I had an idea it was difficult to use a jig like this, but I was all wron...

This is part two in the making of a coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stove.(If it sounds like madness, read the first part of the blog, if you then still think it’s madness… well then you might be right, but I enjoy every moment of the making). Here the camp stove, setup in kitchen mode, where the boxes function as table and storage, during cooking. Where the ...

Coffee ceremony shrine #1: Using the Festool jointing system VS 600 GE

02-18-2020 11:51 AM by mafe | 9 comments »

Coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stove Using the Festool jointing system VS 600 GE. Yes you might get upset now, because I’ll start this project by telling a small story of a camp stove, how I got it and restored it – after that, the real woodworking begins and part of this story, is me finally getting the Festool jig into use (I got the luck to get it used for a third of the price), after it has been hanging on my wall unused, for a year or so… This is what we will en...

Here a sample of what it does.It was one of these aha moments, m...

EDIT 13 Mar 2018Diagrams at the end explain how to when there are more than 3 fingers. Important to take note of the Kerf Maker orientation and also that the fingers that are cut will be the reverse image of the spacers on the sled. Never mix up the sequence of the spacers. ...

EDIT 13 Mar 2018Part 2 explains it more clearly and works for even spaced and uneven spaced fingers.

It works like thisYou use a stop block and spacers and the Kerf Maker on the sled to cut the Box Joint Fingers. The 1st step is to align everything for the 1st cut. I switched the spacers and the Kerf Maker around to save...
