Project Information

A couple of days ago a member of "the other" forum asked for help with routing a box from solid wood. I did in fact do exactly this some years ago using my first rather basic digital camera. It was also well before I learned how to superimpose text. I decided to re-work the photographs and add text and thought that it may be of some interest here. please let me know if you have problems opening the pdf and if so suggestions as to how I should alter things on Google docs. Here is the link to the pdf

Having joined this forum only a couple of hours ago, I have already learned something very useful - routing a box out of the solid. What a good idea, and very nicely executed. Thanks, Harry. Got any more brilliant ideas?

Thank you one and all for your kind comments.
Thermaloy, this link is to a series which I called "Routing tutorials for beginners" it may be of interest as may be some of my projcts posted on this forum. By the way, I forgot to welcome you so, welcome to this forum Thermaloy.

This may be a better link, a kind fellow member turned my threads into pdf's which I wasn't capable of doing at that time.

Thanks Kevin, I do like your signature line!

Sergio, now that's what I like to hear, members giving it a go. I plan to make and show other shapes and methods after I get through the pile in the current pipeline, including a DVD cabinet, but different to the neat one that you made, the discs will be horizontal so that I don't have to bend my arthritic neck to read the titles.

Jim, thanks for your kind words, would you by any chance have a link to the article, I'm interested to see the method used.
