Sample text

If you’d like to personalize the box, you can easily add a name or initials to the base or front of the box by hammering tacks into place. Add a base The base of this box is little more than a length of solid stock cut 3⁄4 in. longer and wider than the dimensions of the box. The base is attached to the bottom of the box with wood screws. 1. Once the base is properly sized, center all four sides of the box on the base and use clamps C Finsih the hinge Use hot melt glue to attach the leather from the underside of the lid to the back of the box, then use tacks to secure it.

Measuring from your line toward the middle of the lid, mark out the thickness of the box end plus one-half the thickness of the dowel used as a stop. For this lid, the sides are 3⁄ 8 in. and the pin is 1⁄ 8 in. , so I measured 7⁄ 16 in. from my pencil line and marked the lid for drilling. 3. Use a drill press to drill for the lid stop. A hand drill could be used for this operation—just be sure to hold the drill square to the stock as you drill (photo B ). 4. Use a hacksaw to cut the brass stock to length.

It’s easiest to finish this box before the hinge is installed on the lid. I apply two or three coats of Danish oil, rubbing the finish out between coats and building to a very slight gloss. For more on this finishing technique, see p. 21. Sand the lid and outside of the box Use an inverted orbital sander to sand the lid and the outside of the box. Move through 180 and 220 grit, then finishsand with 240 grit. Hand-sand chamfers on the lid and bottom using a sanding block and 240 grit paper. Attach the hinge fit the underside of the lid.
