I've been busy cutting one of these myself today - hoping for brownie points on Monday
I had to rearrange it for our metric world over here and then picked the wrong board to cut it from
. Spotted the problem in time to re do the layout and managed to cut it, with only a slight nick taken out of one of the screws I was holding my wrongly sized board down with
It isn't up to the standard that many of you guys on here regularly post but I'm delighted with it. I'll probably ruin it tommorow applying the finish but that is all part of the learning curve as well eh?
Here are a couple of photos taken with my phone of work in progress, I'm letting the glue for the various pieces dry over night.
I've added a little to the design by incorporating a personal message under the 'top slice' which I'm planing to hold on with a rare earth magnet I happen to have (and a drawing pin ...). I stole the idea from Grease's recent box he posted.
I'll post further pictures tommorow whichever way it turns out.
Thanks again Michael for a great project - I've had a great deal of fun today - by the way, the tip of using a sander clamped down has saved a huge amount of time!
