Project of the Day : Engraved Oak 3 Stick Travel Case

Chris and JSG,
I worked with the Dado last night and sure enough, the grooving problem was user error. :)
I set the chippers at 90 degree intervals and it worked great. Then I made an nice oak inset for my table saw (complete with a tab stay on one end and a locking screw deal on the other end) so the Dado doesn't kill me.
I ripped some ebony last night and I've mentally prepared myself to do a couple dado's and try some inlay work today. I'll start praying for patience right now, cause I'm going to need a big mess of it. :)

Nice work!

Good thinking on the oak inlay, forgot all about that. I made one from UHMW plastic to keep my fingers too.

Post up some more pics!

Pics of the inset aren't very sexy. I'm working on a few other things and I'll have another POD thread soon. :tu
I've got about half of a desktop humi done, so it won't be long. :tu

The Freud dados are pretty cool once they are set up.
They actually are very smooth to use and mine has always produced a very clean cut, even on a cheapie table saw.
I have also used it (the 6") on my old DeWalt Radial arm saw, but I think I might now be wiser than I was then . . .
I love watching what you build, keep sharing the pics, everything is looking great!!

To all you John's, this thing is already in the mail. Went Friday, I think.
It's gonna land in somebody's mailbox any day now. :)

The first three desktops will be done real soon. :)
If it weren't for this camping trip weekend, I'd be damn near done.
I have the bottom of one finished and most of the parts done for the rest.
I can't till they're done, either. I'm amazed at how long it takes. No wonder why a handmade humi costs a fortune.

Aint that the truth! I have been working on mine for over 4 months now....but it's almost done now. I hope to have it done within the next week or two(barring no more damn hurricanes). I know your itching to see it. :tu

I can't say enough about your work. Excellent craftsmanship!

Word.
Hurricanes are definately gonna slow things down. :r
I have two tops made and two bottoms made now. I'm headed out to get back to work on them now.
I haven't given a moment's thought to the interior yet. That will probably push me over the edge. :r

Is that all? It feels like we have been waiting for the trees to grow so you can have the wood. And anoth.......

What?

It's Tuesday?

Darn. :mad:

John showed it to me earlier today. Very nice work Scott! The photos don't do it justice.
He had no idea it was coming. Nice hit. :tu
