Default Jerry's Latest Project

Since I am a self taught woodworker, and a bit reluctant sometimes about taking advise from others as observed by Harry who has tried in vain to help me in the past, I have had to figure things out for myself. While doing this is undoubtedly normal for most folks, I suspect that I'm not as good at it as the majority of the members of this forum, in other words, I'm a bit slow on the draw with of the simplest projects.

But this does not in any way detract from the pleasure that I derive from working in the shop.

Sometime back I wanted to learn to make small boxes but ran into some challeges, one of which was how to cut recesses or mortises for the leafs on small hinges.

Recently I had an idea and began to see if I could make it work. I had two issues in mind that I wanted to accomplish with the jig. First I wanted it to work on any thickness of the walls of a box. To be a little more clear, due to the size of the hinges that I had purchased, the minimum thickness of the stock being used is about 3/8". but the jig is not restricted from working on any thickness of stock.

The other feature that I wanted was to be able to be certain that opposing recesses match perfectly which is necessary in order for the lid to match the carcass.

The attached photos are pretty self explanatory. In another thread I had asked for some help finding a vise with a deep throat. The photos will show why I was looking for such a tool. I think that this problem has been solved now.

first of all know thy self and your opening demonstrates that
2nd regarding exchanges with other forum members IMHO on this forum there are teachers and learners. The majority do both. A few select are teachers and some are acknowledged by forum designation. It must be very frustrating to take the time to teach and have your knowledge ignored. I am very aware at 65 I do not have moments to waste and if I had invested time and have my efforts ignored would irritate me to no end.
3 rd regarding the jig great job getting it the way you wanted After home remodeling I hope like you to do itty bittty box building. Having dabbled with that type of jig congrats on nailing it.
Finally Jerry I enjoy your threads but then I do love eccentricities of life

Learning is an exciting adventure

Bill,
You sort of make me feel I have been taken to the wood shed in regard to taking advise from a person that is tryied to help me. In my defense I'd like to say that if one asks for advise and then does not take it, then that's one thing, but if advise is offered that was not asked for, well, that's another matter. In the absence of your knowing the details you can easily draw the wrong conclusion. This is just my attempt to defend myself in your opinion of the matter.

But thanks for the nice things that you said about the jig.

With that said, let's just continue to be friends and let this pass. I will never ever have to many friends and suspect that feel the same way about the matter.

Jerry.........obviously you put a lot of time and effort into the jig to come up with an exacting result. I think I understand the principle, but could you post one more picture showing the finished joint, and how the hinges fit? Thanks. Jim

I love fixture building. Thanks for sharing. But stupid me, I don't get it. Can you post a few more picks in action?

Jerry,
I just wish to state that there are different styles of learning and we all must respect that that makes us unique. So also teachers must appreciate that fact, if the way one delivers a solution and it is not well received , then as a teacher one try make the delivery in another way appreciating that the recipient has a different learning style.

I find that your threads are always informative and creative ....keep on plugging.

O.K., I'll mock up a box, and take photos so that the application will be easier to understand. This will also affirm to me that the jig works like I think it will as it has not been used on a real project as of yet.

This will give me a good rason to put off some yard work until later.
