Display, Storage and Transport Case For A Stanley #945 Bit  Brace & Russell Jennings Brace BitsI started this project with the plan to build only a case for the bit brace and it evolved into a storage case for both the brace and the bits.I designed it so it could be hung, carried or stored.If the original plan was for the bits and brace I would have made it wide enought to store all 13 bits in the compartment under the brace.
I added brackets to the right of the brace for the 3 remaining bits.Their glued on top and screwed in place from the bottom of the panel.Alot of filling and sanding went into the Mahogany parts. Splinter and Art had planned to startel me again, I mean visit me, but this time I was ready for them. My guard cat came running into the shop meowing signaling that they were sneeking up to the shop.
I was waiting there with different grits of sand paper in my hands. I must say they did a fantastic job of sanding all these parts. lol.
The slots were routed out on the table with 3/16”, 1/2” and 3/4” bowl/tray bits.The storage tray and brackets for the brace and bits are made from Mahogany, the case is made from Red Oak from the old cabinet doors I replaced with A&C style and the splines are made from Curamu.The 3/4” Oak was resawed on the band saw to 1/2” thick.The bits are held in place with this piece I made that has green felt glued to its bottom with PVA glue. The pressure from the top panel that holds the brace in place Is screwed down with two 1/4-20 knurled brass nuts and prevents the bits from shifting.

There's the handle I made that was the last project I posted.
I bought the latch from Wood Craft for $4.95.These solid brass hinges were purchaced from Horton Brasses for $14.95.I put 1/4” Mahogany dowels through the mortice and tenons of the door to strenghen the 1/2” thick rails and stiles.I used Plexiglass instead of glass.All the material and parts were from left overs from other projects except for the Mahogany for the tray.I have more process photos that this computer wasn't able to down load from my iPhone. I think it's because I took them in HD.I'll down load them later from my iPhone.

Routing out the tray. The fence had to be moved back to widen the slots.
I was using 3/16, 1/2 and 3/4 round top bowl/tray bits.



The tray is glued on top and screwed from the other side of the panel.

Gluing on the mahogany ledge that the panel that holds the bit in place rests on.

Screwing on the handle with SS 1-1/2 square drive screws.Thanks for visiting.

Barbecue area in the style of a castle ruinI would like to introduce you to my project, which has nothing to do with wood, but was still a manual work. It is a barbecue area in the style of a castle ruin. It was built from old sandstones of an ancient shed. It took 3 months to build it, but the work was well worth for. I hope, you enjoy it.
