« Part 1: Project Planning Part 2 of Stand Up Jewelry Box series Part 3: Ring and Music Box »

Despite the weather remaining way below freezing since Christmas, I decided we needed to get into the shop and start on the project. So last night I finished planing the boards for the ring case and my eldest, Charmayne, started on learning how to make the drawers she’ll be responsible for. With temperatures remaining in the teens this morning she and I made our way back over to make some more progress. I worked on making the half blind box joints on the ring case but will need to decide if I’m going to redo them since I did mess up two fingers (they’ll be hid so I’m tempted to not worry right now). It’s what I get for trying to cut the through ones free hand with my plunge router instead of using the table saw.

Pictures are going to be a little slow coming right now as we don’t have much to show off just yet.

Need to get into the shop myself. The temp in the teens and lower limit my desire a bit … guess I need to “cowboy up” too …

Have your say...
