Homemade Cap Iron Screwdriver 5Hello fellows,at this time one more screwdriver for use at handplanes cap iron screw.Another friend ask me to do one more.
At this one I decided to add some charm and a new level of skills.I have a Mortise Pal and I used it for make a groove in a precise and quickly way.See the pictures below.The idea of shape started here.I choose a Brazilian good quality wood.First I did the groove before to cut circular final shape.



I don't have a lathe and I was thinking in make the round groove using a small router e a round bit.
I make this recess using a Forstener bit for starts the cut from here.But I thought this cut unsafe and gave up.


I choose these tools to make the round groove.

At back to suport I used a shelf pin (5mm) like this
After a rough cut using a microplane rasp I made one pass using the cylinder burr rasp/bit and after used a pencil for find possible high spots (remember a round cut from hole saw is not 100% perfect round).I rasped high spots before a new pass.The back pin supports the piece.

Remember do not go so far.The blades I made using a stainless steel 1 1/4”x1/8” flat bar.Iglued the blades with epoxy glue.

Gent's Jewelry Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Gent's Jewelry BoxI made this box for my brother's 40th birthday gift.
Wenge and curly maple.I knew I wanted the design to feel “masculine” and I think to that end I was successful. My brother has a bunch of watches and rings, so this is designed with those items in mind.
It's roughly 9” X 14”X 5 1/2”.Thick leather lined drawers. Splined miter construction cut from a single piece of Wenge. Sliding dovetail bottom keeps the sides braced in front.
Half lap partitions.
Brusso stop hinges.
Lacquer finish.This was my first time using lacquer and I quite like it.Wish I had taken more pictures!Thanks for looking.
