    tosonera mk 4 project

    well, the two hole tosotnera was such a hit, someone now wants one with 4 holes. i found that i had some white oak scraps that will work just fine. got them planed today, and will do the glue up tomorrow. i may have enough to make 2 of them.

    went to town on this one today. edge jointed, and cut the parts to size. i like the idea of having the front of the lid overhang just a touch. then i glued up the blank for the bottom, and went on to making a new platform for the brains of the cnc machine (see new thread). once that was done, cleaned up the base, and marked the positions for the holes. i set up and ran the programs for the logo, and lettering. while that was going on, i cut the holes in the base, and rounded over the edges. once the cnc part was done, i laid out, and drilled the insets for the modified dowels. then fitted everything together. all that is left now, is just the sanding, hinges, and oil.

    These projects have made me want to get Linda to have a go at making some tosonera to try out. I can get plantains at the local grocer.
    cheers

    that's tostones rob, the tostonera makes the tostone. let me know, and i'll send one of the flat tostone ones (easier to use) to test out.
