  1. Thanks
    Gerald got a reaction from Gunny in Next Project?   
    Gunny this is my answer. The #3 is easy to find used and is classified as a smoother as the #4 is. Personally I use the 3 for taking off moderately large amounts of wood quickly. Then on the #4 you might describe as the final touch before using a hand held scraper. The 3 is as its number expresses smaller than the 4. There may be angle differences between the two on the blade bed but I am not sure.

    Busy day around here with workers on the roof so I couldn’t open up the shop today so another small project was in order. I decided that since that ice cream scoop is for a very special relative I might as well make a box for it instead of just wrapping it.

    And right now I am working on a different type of decay. I made a taller base for each column this morning and will use quarter round to cover the gaps.
     
    This is 21 years worth of wear and tear with no repair for that length of time. Wife said I want the house to look good if you die!!!!
      /And the person who invented paper wall board and water base outdoor floor paint should have his ba--- cut off. But now I knew some of what I was getting in to so yep it was all my fault. 
     
    I put oil base out door type porch and floor paint on two decks and I ran out of paint and was fixin to go get more when brother in law said hey I got a full 5 gallons can of water base out door floor paint and you can have it free....but I don't like water base anything for outdoors....but they have made it better now.... oh sure!!!! the other two decks the oil base never flaked off anywhere . It final wore off from foot traffic. All three decks are about 3 foot off the ground.
       She did paint all the outside walls some times ago but I was busy and didn't help on my part of the repairs...

    Screwdriver drawer completed.  Two other drawers have trays in finishing room. Red is straight slot, blue is Phillips and black is Torx.

    With that ball joint you can turn the camera 360 and movements in up and down between 90 and 100 degrees. Also once things get better the Logitec webcams allow even greater movement in the up and down without moving the arm.

    Your work is still improving.
     
    Now for some camera mount ideas. You can mount camera from a flex mount or wooden jointed mount with a miniball mount like this :Mini Ball camera mount    or something more costly however this one will work. Place a mount in ceiling over the headstock for the top shot and one at tailstock for that shot. These could also be mounted to wall. Now if you want to spend more a magic arm is an option and there are many configurations of these as well as flex arm mounts . Both of these mounts allow changes in angle of shot and may be closer to what you will want. Magic Arm mount 11 inch

    Very INTERESTING. Am I correct that the hinge does not show? I have seen this type thing that pulls down to reveal the box but I think that type has to be screwed to the wall. Which brings up the question of how to mount this as I would not want the frame to fall when I grab the firearm?

    Did not feel like routing all those recesses....
     
    Can't spread things out flat in the shop...have to go "vertical"   smaller footprint, easier to stack on a shelf....box is the same size as the one for my Stanley No. 45...
     
    At least this beats sitting around in an old FORD parts box....

    Ever wonder why I haven't used the Tablesaw for this Project?

    Twould be nice IF I could find it....
     
    I did find 2 planks that almost matched each other in thickness...even the edges were close...so...spread some glue, use the bench vise as a third hand...

    Add a few clamps...is 5 too many?
    Not too sure about this green stripe, though..

    May keep it...may not....May just make it the trim around the lid...we'll see.

    I built two of these for a friend and just finished them today.  They're about 10" x 13" x 2" and made of Walnut, finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer.  The frame holds an 8x10 photo.
