Default A marriage of convenience

Viewers may remember that I recently "tested" the Oak Park spacer jig and ended up with a carcass for possible future use. On a separate occasion I routed a pattern for a lid which, even though I had done this on several previous occasions, did not turn out as intended, but a few extra lines gave a new pattern.
It is no secret that I tend to be lazy, so when my granddaughter asked me to make a box for holding exotic tea bags as a present for her future mother-in-law, my mind turned to the above two projects and this is where the marriage comes in. Links to the two earlier projects are:

It's amazing how many operations are necessary to produce such a simple box.

That's a beautiful box Harry.. I'm going to try the Danish oil sometime.. I like the finish it provides..

Hi Harry

Now that's what I call a GREAT shoot the only thing I didn't get to see is how you put the hinges in... the real hard part to get right... and can make the box or turn the job into junk...but this one is keeper..

But the box is realy neat, nice job

Thanks guys, yes I am always happy with five coats of Danish oil finished with 0000 wire wool lubed with wax polish. The inside only had two coats and wasn't polished.
Bj., I had intended to show the fitting of the hinges, a job that I hated for many years, but the day that I fitted them the rain was pelting down and my camera was in the house. Basically I place the hinges on the lid at a distance that looks ok and screw them in position. I then lay the lid horizontal with packing underneath and mark the position on the box. I hand saw the cut-outs and chisel out the waste. Next time I make a box I shall include fitting the hinges.

Hi Harry

I hate that job also,, I found a new way of doing it,, have you tried it..?

Drop the box on a 1/4" or 1/8", 3/16" bit on the router table, it makes the job easy and the hinges fit just right.

Cool

Nice Project... Photo Shoot...

The Inlay... you didn't use a template to route the small grooves to receive the inlays?
A square and chisel was used instead?
Did I miss something?

I like the way you solved the ht. problem to hold the tea...
There were only two ways to do it, aside from redoing it...
1. Add on to the box.
2. Route out from the bottom. (with those skiis, it would've been easy)

Your decision was good!

Very nice!

Where did you keep your tea before this box was made? (just curious)

I'll bet you really like those box cutting jigs from Oak Park; like many of us do.

Sorry I missed how you installed those hinges... jig, template, skiis used?

Thanks for sharing!

Have Fun,
Joe
