My First Attempt At a Tote
So I’ve had this #7 that I got with a broken tote. I glued it back together with titebond and it snapped a couple of uses later. I cleaned out the glue and tried gorilla glue… Broke again….
Finally I decided to try my hand at making my own. It wasn’t near as bad as I though it was going to be.
First I glued a template to some rosewood.
Then it was off to the “tailed devils” for the first part of it’s construction.I justify this to myself because I needed a good first project for my new Christmas present Jigsaw…. and I hate braces!!! (Note for you non woodworkers: Most serious hand tool users consider it a borderline religion and the use of electrons a sin.)
I’ve never used rasps before so this was a learning process. I was shocked at how fast they work!!!
It’s certainly not perfect, in fact it already looks old due to some dents and dings of mistakes with the rasp, and the fit isn’t quite perfect.
