Seems there is a second project tied in with that desk project....A friend of the Pastor has requested a Candy box like the one Pastor has....that I built a while back, soooo Have a 7/16" x 6" board of either Cherry or maple... Had to get five pieces out of this one board...Front and Back, two Ends, and a piece for the lid.. used the old Langdon.. Got my Cardio for the day.....five parts, cut to size.. Used a mortise chisel to lay out the finger spacing... Now,I could do all them little cuts with a handsaw.....NOT. Started to use the bandsaw..heard a strange banging going on inside it.. Lower wheel had a "blow-out" Saw still runs nicely enough without it, and quieter, too. Got the cuts made, time to do a bit of chisel work.. Got out a few tools...the mortise chisel was put away, though... As this old Buck Brothers 1/4" Firmer chisel needed a work out. Just like on dovetails, I chop halfway from one face, flip it over, and complete the chop. Trying to save my bench's top, I clamped a pine scrap under things. Got the fingers done on the front and back parts, need to do the ends....ran out of Mountain Dew IN the shop...BREAKTIME! Maybe later, I can get back to work? Box will be delivered a week from this Sunday, hidden inside the desk. Might be able to get this done be then? Stay tuned,,,here we go again...
