For this week’s fab, I wanna to make a wooden box for my Pcom+ICM final prototype.
It all starts with a sketch.
Measuring and cutting. During cutting I think there might be a issue with the blade that it was extremely not straight, and it wasn’t just happened to me, it also happened to Yunho. It took me a long time on sanding. It was then that I also realized a issue, my wood is not flat… that made it so hard for me to make the box flat and good looking.
So I tried the solution to wet them first and then clamp them whole night.
It worked, for a little. But I tried 😉
I bought the hinges for the cover of the book. They are awesome but I think they are more suitable for detachable part, since the pin inside of the hinges are moveable and very easy to get lost, after some sanding of the whole box, I lost one already. : )
Here is how it turned out in the end, they are not flat so that broke my heart but I tried, and I really like working with wood.
If I can make it all over again, I think I would check the wood before I paid. I learned my lesson. And if I have time and energy I will paint it~
