National Woodworking Month

The month of April is National Woodworking Month and what better way to celebrate than to introduce someone new to the wonderful world of woodworking. My niece came up with her family to visit us and while she was here I was able to help her complete a project she needed to do for school. She had to make a lidded box and provide the measurements and tools used. She came up with the lidded pencil box idea on her own and also thought of the lid to be sliding. As soon as she got here I put her to work. Of course I had to document the whole thing in video format. That’s what we YouTubers do, right? It was a lot of fun to show her around the shop and the different tools and their functions. She was most impressed with the router. Overall she did great and she learned a few things along the way. If you ever get the chance to show a kid or even someone older than you around the shop seize the opportunity. It’s very rewarding helping someone realize they can do things when they thought otherwise.

ABOUT THE PROJECT


We made the box from Cherry wood. We used a miter saw to cut the wood to length; a table saw to rip the wood to width; a bandsaw to resaw the wood to thickness and then sanded the project after assembly to smooth everything out. To finish it we applied a couple of coats of fast drying satin polyurethane to the completed box.
