Photos aren't working, Oliver. How can I assist?
Are they there now? I can see them in my browser, but there are duplicates.Photos aren't working, Oliver. How can I assist?
Thanks, David.Yes sir, they're showing and that's a great solution! I'll remove the duplicates.
Probably the easiest way to place photos is to drag and drop them into this field, one at a time.
The design took a little more work than I expected, Paul. First, I tried scanning the tools so I could use the photo as a template. Scanning left too many shadows to make it worthwhile. So I laid the calipers on paper and just drew around them with a pencil. I scanned the drawing and used it as my guide, creating the vectors in V Carve by drawing basic shapes and merging them. Conveniently, although the two calipers are from different manufacturers, their size and shape are almost identical, so I only needed to create one outline.Nice. Did you have to design the shape yourself or is there 'clipart' for this sort of thing, Oliver?
Yes, they are made from 3/4" baltic birch plywood.I Like the dogs bench in the second picture, Prof. Henry.
Are they homemade?
Yep. Good idea. An alternate method would be to make two layers as you suggest. You could cut the outline with a scroll saw into some 1/4" thick material and glue to a bottom piece, to complete the tray.Great idea, also have the top caliper and agree that it is a PITA to remove from the case (short of turning the upside down and shaking it). Don't have a CNC but thinking that I can cut a corner of the sheet of 1/4" MDF I have lying around and cut the outline in it and then glue to a bottom layer.
I'm happy to hear you heard from Barb, Tom. She's missed by all of us. Too cold in Michigan? Uh oh, does the dreaded "I-word" apply to her shop? Is she like a member, who shall go unnamed (but whose first initials rhyme with RainMan), and is known for lack of environmental temperature control materials in his shop walls?Oliver, Barb sent me a surprise email yesterday and told me specifically to say hello to you. She's not been doing much lately because it's so cold in Michigan.
