Then when I signed on yesterday and went right straight to my usual site, everything was there....I went and looked in the nearest mirror and spoke sternly to myself..."Wake up, silly! You read the blogs that you follow on Blogger Dashboard! You have never even seen Google Reader! Duh!!!" So much for needless worrying...Sometimes the six year old takes over at the most unexpected moments...
Now for the business at hand. Here are the plans for the mini mini Indoor, Outdoor Box.
As usual, these are copyrighted and for personal use only. They and their plans are not to be sold and no teaching classes for money! Free only!
Here we go. The first photo is on quarter inch graph paper and should be easy enough to draw. All measurements are included. The project is made from 1/32" bass wood.
Second photo. All of the pieces were measured onto the wood with a T square. Then they were cut out with a metal ruler and Exacto knife with a NEW blade.
Seven pieces for the box. If you are going to make more than one, it is easier to mark and cut all of them at once. I cut 4 and it took about a half an hour to do it all. If it is your first try, it may take a bit longer.
As you can see, it is much easier to put together if you have a gluing jig. This one is from Micro Mark and is about 20 years old. It is still square and still going strong! Worth every penny(and more) of the 16.95+shipping that I paid for it at the time. It is probably one of my most used tools.
I am going back to work on this now...It's either that or cleaning the dreaded, dreadful workroom.
See you tomorrow.
