I was asked if I could make a last minute box to be given as a gift. The catch was that I only had 24 hours to design and build it. I like a challenge so I dropped everything and got to work. The customer was wanting something pretty simple, and no dividers, so I scratched my head and came up with this. I barely delivered it in time….whew!The sides are a very dark White Oak The lid is from one piece of quilted Western Maple The handle is Paduak The feet are walnut with a Paduak rail, this can be seen in photo 4 The lining is Buffalo hide Brass pins were used for hinges Finish is semi-gloss LacquerThanks for looking!
It's not always convenient to hook a large dust collection unit to all my tools. So, I built this cabinet after looking around on the web. Two drawers with a separating baffle in between make lighter weight emptying. It will require a little more work, as the chip ejection fan on this planer is so strong that it blows the drawers open just a little, allowing some sawdust to blow out.I think I'll try cutting a 4or 5 inch hole in the front and use a filter to ease the pressure without losing the sawdust.Anyone been through this? If you have, advice is appreciated.
