This is kind of tounge in cheek Title. I am not sorry for my actions,but every once in a while you tend to look back and.....Wow did I spend that much! Any way,A few weeks back I got the bug about getting an Ibox. I was really taken up by what I saw on FW . I ordered one and After almost 2 weeks it finnaly came. Had such a great time with it that I could see that it would be great for making wooden hinges as well as just box joints.
Of course then I would need the Hinge crafter so I could drill the hoes for the brass rod. Lets not forget a couple of bull nose bits to form the knuckles on the hinge. I allready had the 3/8ths one but I wanted the 1/2"
one so I could make larger hinges for a cabinet.
The Box joints were right on even the small 1/8 ones on the lift out tray.
Found a 13 1/2" space on the shop wall and had to build a cabinet there so as to use my walnut hinges.
The one I made from Aspin was my first atempt and it turned out good so then on to the walnut. The hinges on the jewerly box were not made with the Ibox so they are not as good quality as the otherswas a blast doing itand just think that first pair of walnut hinges only cost me $314.00 That does not cover the cost of material that I used to make the cabinet so I had some place to put those new hinges. The only place I used the router table was to make the hinge nuckles. All the rest was done on the table saw with dato blades. I cut them apart on my bandsaw. Each time I work with it I learn a little more. Also how important it is to mike the dato blades to exact width of cut so fingers slide nicely into the hingecrafter.
