woodworking project - making production jewelry boxes

by:Gewinn     2020-06-04
Some woodworking machines are only used for production work.
This is because it takes too much time to set them up for only one cut.
On the other hand, if you are going to do the same cut or joint over and over again, the production machine is a way to go.
The advantage of using a production machine is the repeatable accuracy of speed.
Time is money, quality is everything.
In this article we will look at JDS more
The router, an expensive but rather compact fixed woodworking machine, can make a wide range of joints, including the Mao and Mao, the inclined Mao and Mao, the box joint and the bird tail joint. The Multi-
The router integrates the router and various router bits to perform high-precision cutting of wood.
The joint is made of a ball. bearing-

The workpiece is clamped on an aluminum stage that can move in and out, left and right and up and down, controlled by 3 manual levers, one for each shaft.
By combining the clamping screws and snap rings to multiple axes, movement along any axis can be stoppedRouter.
Specific cutting may require allowing the machine to float freely in both directions, while limiting any movement of the machine along the remaining axes.
As an example, how many
The router works and I will discuss how I can make matching jewelry boxes.
The motivation to use production machines is pure and simple: if you can do accurate and detailed work in a short period of time, you can produce high output
A lot of high quality goods, so that more sales, therefore more money.
You can also ask for more money to buy details like the Yanwei corner.
Before starting to use my jewelry box I have to determine which sizes are the most appropriate as I will use a machine to make the same size
The same size of the split tail.
I found that I could do two matching things in the corner of a jewelry box up to 2 1/4.
The three matching boxes need to increase the height of the finished box and I decided that the size would not look so good.
The next step is stocking.
Completed inventory must have a consistent thickness and width in orderRouter.
The final thickness of the side and top of the jewelry box is 3/8 \".
The base of the jewelry box is 1/8 plywood covered with velvet pads.
The bottom of the plywood is installed in the 1/8 \"saw cut\" above the bottom of the inner wall of the jewelry box.
For the sake of economics, I choose to resell three pieces from 2 pieces per piece \"(8/4)lumber.
Before rescanning, I cut 2 pieces of \"wood into pieces a little wider than the final size of 2 1/4 \"(about 2 1/2\").
I set the resaw to cut three equal pieces of wood from each piece of raw wood.
I then use my SuperMax drum sander to reduce the thickness size of these parts to 3/8 \"thick\" with a diameter of 220.
Then trim the parts to the final width (both edges)
Saw on the table.
The final length of 12 (
Front and back of jewelry box)and 7\" (sides)
Then cut on the mitchsaw with a Forrest ChopMaster blade that left a mirror-like cut. On the Multi-
Router, one template is used to cut the tail with a tuxedo, and the other is used to cut the pin with a straight spiral cutter.
It takes a while to install and will waste some wood, so it\'s better to have some cheap wood of the same size and thickness as the final wood type.
Table adjustments must be made on the In and Out axis to get the correct cut depth and then lock the position.
The detailed hand album is included in more
Router, so I won\'t repeat this here.
Just say that the workpiece is clamped at a fixed position on the table and when the stylus tracks each template, the left/right and upper/lower axes float freely.
Trial and error will eventually give you a perfect fit on the scrap wood, and once that is done, you can start producing the final piece.
If you wish, you can cut the tail at both ends of the jewelry box, both ends of the front and back can cut the pin, and vice versa.
Now it\'s back on the table to cut the groove of the plywood floor.
You have to stop cutting without going through the end of the workpiece.
Mark the pencil line on the table to let you know where to start and where to stop.
The idea is to lower the workpiece to a saw blade set to 1/8 above the table.
When the workpiece hits the table, it should be a little earlier than the front stop line.
Pull the workpiece back to the parking line before pushing it forward to the rear parking line.
For safety reasons, stop the saw before lifting each workpiece from the blade.
Finished, fitted jewelry box piece pushed along with a little Titebond glue while inserting the bottom of the plywood into 1/8 \"pre-cut groove.
Clip the box Square for 45 minutes.
The top of the box can be oversized, polished to 3/8 \"@ 220 sand and trimmed to fit the jewelry box.
The top can be covered with hinges, or the rear corner can be inserted with brass pins.
Once you have determined the final size of the top, you should be able to install all the boxes safely due to your multiple precisionRouter-made boxes.
I like to beat the box and all the corners at the top with 1/8 \"turn
Before polishing.
Jewelry boxes and tops should be polished to at least 220 sand by random track Sander and hand before they are completed.
I choose to spray on the gloss (
Catalytic varnish).
You might prefer something else.
If you are going to spray, I suggest you turn yourself into a lazy susan (
Hardware parts supplied by carpentry).
Take a few pieces of 1/8 \"layers of the same size as the bottom of the box, drill a hole in each corner, and insert the bright flat head box nail into the hole.
The dimensions of the drill should be the same or smaller as the shaft of the nail to prevent the nail from slipping back from the plywood.
Place a layer on the Lazy Susan, nail point, and place the box on the top of the nail point.
After spraying the box, you can pick it up with plywood and put it aside to dry.
When spraying the top, sharp nail points do not leave visible marks on the finish.
The last point is the velvet lining.
You need the poster board, 3m spray-
1/8 foam liner and adhesive on velvet.
Velvet can be found in any dry goods store, and other items can be found in the crafts store of Ben Franklin or Michael.
Cut down velvet and extend 1 in all directions\"
Sea cutting board
Cut Out 1 \"x1\" Square from every corner of velvet (
You may have to adjust it to suit the foam liner. )
Spray the liner on the poster board.
With reference to the poster board, the padding should be cut a bit small.
Wrap the velvet on the liner and stick the flaps to the back of the poster board.
The poster board should be pre-
Cut into a box that fits perfectly with velvet wrapped on the edge.
This may require some experiments, but the final dimension can be repeated over and over again.
You can also find velvet, partitioned jewelry box insert tray online.
These are usually standard sizes, so if you are interested in using them instead of filling the bottom of the simple package described above, you have to design your box around the size of the velvet tray you will be using.
Finally, I assume that you can see now that there are a lot of sets in such a production run-
Should get up more than work time
Efficiency of repeatable accuracy.
On the other hand, I can cut the fit of a box by hand, but they don\'t look as tight and smooth as the machine cut.
In short, if you want to buy more new or used
Router, plan to do a lot of jewelry boxes (or whatever)
In each production run.
