I did not know what to make for the 2015 Kitchen Utensil Build Challenge but I knew that I wanted to try make something using my new Spline jig so I thought I would make an utensil holder and came up with this decorative box.
A friend of mine dropped off some some oak pallet wood last week. It had a few nail holes so instead of filling and sanding I just cut them out.
last video. Both videos used a different clamping method.
With the box glued together I first carefully measured and used a test piece to make sure all the cuts were exact. I did not want to mess up the work that I have done so far.
Just measure twice... use a scrap test piece and
A strip of dark hardwood is first cut on the table saw at 45 degrees then cut to small triangles on the band saw.
The box is sitting in a V-block and the triangle blocks are glued and a weight is placed on top to clamp them.
After the glue has dried I use the band saw to trim the triangle blocks. It is then taken over to the belt sander and sanded smooth.
The last thing to do is put on a bottom. I just traced out a piece from the inside and cut it on the band saw. With some glue this will be a very snug fit.
The utensil holder turned out nice and sits in the kitchen. I am very happy with my spline jig (plus). It does a great job and cuts accurately. I am now ready for my next project.
