These students, 2nd through 5th grade, are already engaged in outside garden activities requiring each student to have a box to plant seeds and grow plants. The teachers see this as an opportunity to have students also experience woodworking skills.</p><p>The school did not have a design, so SketchUp became an important collaboration tool. I was told that the box should be 12 x 12 – the only specifications – so there was much flexibility. The following image shows the final approved design, after sending several SketchUp views and dimensions. Also I’ve shown the prototype in Monterey Pine.</p> <p><img class=”alignnone size-medium wp-image-224685″ src=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080245/Assembly-700×537.png” alt=”Assembly” width=”700″ height=”537″ srcset=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080245/Assembly-700×537.png 700w, http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080245/Assembly-768×589.png 768w, http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080245/Assembly.png 1019w” sizes=”(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px”/></p> <p><img class=”alignnone size-medium wp-image-224686″ src=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080252/IMG_5807-700×525.jpg” alt=”IMG_5807″ width=”700″ height=”525″ srcset=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080252/IMG_5807-700×525.jpg 700w, http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080252/IMG_5807-768×576.jpg 768w, http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080252/IMG_5807-1200×900.jpg 1200w” sizes=”(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px”/></p> <p>SketchUp will also be used in the classroom building sessions, as it provides a step-by-step procedure for the construction at school. This should help teachers and children to orient and join the box components. Also it shows where woodworking tools are introduced, such as the hammer, awl, hand drill, and screwdriver.</p> <p>Step 1 – Position the Front piece flat on the floor with its top edge facing you. Insert the two Ends into the dado joints as shown. Make sure that the top of the Ends is vertical and facing you.</p> <p><img class=”alignnone size-medium wp-image-224674″ src=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080129/Step-1-700×524.png” alt=”Step 1″ width=”700″ height=”524″ srcset=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080129/Step-1-700×524.png 700w, http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080129/Step-1-768×575.png 768w, http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/29080129/Step-1.png 1033w” sizes=”(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px”/></p> <p>Step 2: Place the Back piece on top of the Ends with the dadoes lined up. Make sure the top edge of the Back is facing you.

Any misalignment in any of the mortises can cause the hinges to bind or leave unsightly gaps when doors or lids are closed.</p> <p>In order to rout perfect hinge mortises in boxes, <em>Fine Woodworking</em> senior editor <a href=”http://www.finewoodworking.com/authors/profile.aspx?id=114980″ title=”Matt Kenney”>Matt Kenney</a> developed a simple router jig that works in conjunction with a bearing-guided pattern bit. The jig is built of MDF and can be built in under an hour. Best of all, with a few modifications to the basic design, you can also tackle hinge mortises in cabinet doors. In this short video, Kenney shows you how to make the jig, and how to use it to cut perfect hinge mortises, every time.</p> <div class=”article__cta fww-newsletter” readability=”31.5″> <div class=”article__cta__form” readability=”33″> <p class=”article__cta__heading”>Get woodworking tips, expert advice and special offers in your inbox</p> <span class=”js-close article__cta__close”>×</span></div> </div> <p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p> Wed, 29 Jul 2015 04:00:00 +0000 Matt Kenney article Router Jig for Perfect Hinge Mortises – FineWoodworking Simple jigs guarantee headache-free hinge installations in boxes and cabinets http://www.finewoodworking.com/2015/07/29/router-jig-for-perfect-hinge-mortises http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/05200551/kenney-hinge-mortise-jigs-thumb2.jpg summary_large_image Simple jigs guarantee headache-free hinge installations in boxes and cabinets Router Jig for Perfect Hinge Mortises – FineWoodworking http://s3.amazonaws.com/finewoodworking.s3.tauntoncloud.com/app/uploads/2016/09/05200551/kenney-hinge-mortise-jigs-thumb2.jpg en-US text/html http://www.finewoodworking.com/2015/07/29/router-jig-for-perfect-hinge-mortises Cabinets Construction Small Projects Woodworking Jigs Boxes – Lidded Doors Installing Hardware Router Jigs
