Printer’s Tray

Keith writes - I built this printer’s tray in one weekend. I took a piece of 70mm x 45mm x 370mm long Macracarpa and cut it down to 7mm strips with my band saw. I planed the edges, joined them and sanded the front down to a good finish. I just lightly sanded the back and then cut the strips down on the table saw for the inside and planed all sides. Next I glued and clamped the pieces in four stages gave it a final sanding, coated the front with polyurethane (diluted down with turpentine) and the back with Meranti stain (diluted down, not to dark). I can supply plans, just e-mail me.
Keepsake Box

Keith writes - I made this out of Macracarpa and I was testing a finger joint jig. It has  velvet inside and is finished with Maxwax.
Router Table Fence

Keith writes – I made this fence for my router table from a plan I got from a friend. The frame is made from particle board and the fence face is made from mdf.  All butt jointed, the dust extraction is also made from mdf.
Blanket Chest

Keith writes – This chest is made completely from reused Pine tongue and grooved infill panels. Put together using half-lapped joints, the lid is plywood and I finished it with Haarlem oil.
