Here is my second project! This is a box to hold my router plane and its accessories. Eventually, I will make boxes like this for a few other tools and will post that when it is done. They will be a nice set that fits in a tool till I have in my garage. It is made from PG medium maple plywood.
To make this I used the box making plugin for inkscape. I tried the kerf setting of .007 and the joint was tighter than a friction fit. I ended up having to file a tiny bit off each of the fingers to get it together. So I will try for a smaller kerf next time and see if it is better.
I also made an insert for the box to hold the plane and parts from sliding around. I set the plane and the parts out and traced around them to make pockets. This was my first use of the trace feature, and it worked pretty good. I am a terrible drawing, and trace is excellent at tracing, so it exactly copied every wobbly line I drew. I had to do some filing to get stuff to fit, but not a lot and the result was the nice friction hold I was looking for. The insert is PG medium draftboard.
Finally, an engrave on the front so I know what is in there, and everything nestled nicely inside.
