« Part 4: EGBs Jewellery box opps, or how not to make a bandsaw box Part 5 of Box Making series Part 6: Off cuts/Scraps put to use »

Just in case everybody thought I may have dumped the screw up work I did on Emily’s Jewellery box.

Today as planned I cut off the sides with the bandsaw and glued them back on the correct sides.
Fabricated a hinge and began the inlay banding

Here we go, this is when you turn on the bandsaw and fingers crossed hope it works out.

First cut went well so I continued

Now I dry assembled all the parts this time to ensure I did not repeat my previous error

Glue it back together for the second time, let it dry then

Then fabricated the lid hinge, and began the inlay banding work.

Note the correct flowing grain, ....just in case you missed it ….Phew saved !!

Thats enough self flagelation (is that correct spelling?) now its on to a completed Project !!

-- Regards Rob
