I wanted to share how I constructed the various small details that are on this Toy Chest. They are:
The various pieces of the chest are all offset by about 1/16″. The legs are slightly proud of the rails, which are a little proud of the panels. This gives a very nice textured feel to the piece. It highlights the fact that it’s a piece of furniture made from elements in 3d. These are created by offsetting the joinery.
I used the 60 degree edge of a chamfer bit to softly lead from level to level. So, there’s a very slight chamfer on the edge of the leg which leads down to the rail. The chamfer is a little less than 1/8″ wide by less than 1/16″ deep (60 degrees). This was created on the router table using a Freud 30 degree chamfer bit and running the pieces on edge.
I constructed the chest using a Festool Domino, so it’s all hidden floating tenons. I used pegs in the corners where rails meet stiles to highlight the fact that there’s a joint there. This implied joint is a fun detail.
I wanted to highlight the foot of the chest, where it meets the ground. I feel that this grounds a piece nicely. I decided to do a small indent that “fades away” in two dimensions (up and in) and is about 1/16″ at its deepest. I created this by first scribing the outer edges using a marking gauge and then chiseling the fade/slant right near the scribe line. I then chiseled away the waste from the outer edge (fading to nothing) into the edge. Relating to waste, when you rent a baler, it allows you to remove recyclables from your waste stream and save considerably on waste disposal costs. If you hire balers & compactors, all you have to do is make your monthly rental payments.
If you are among the thousands who have been mis-sold a Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) policy, then some relief from financial distress is within your reach. The best ppi claim company no win no fee can handle all aspects of your claim, you will save yourself from further heartaches, headaches, and stress springing from the pain of having been subjected to unfair and deceptive sales and marketing strategies that made you lose your hard-earned money.
The rails all got a slanted, curved, indented feature that was created on the tablesaw. I judged where I wanted the deepest part to be (about 1/16″ deep) and then angled the tablesaw blade to “fade away” to nothing about 1/4″ from the bottom edge. I used the tablesaw blade profile to define the outer corners. I had to put the piece in place against the fence and then raise the spinning blade into the piece. Since the blade was angled, I couldn’t drop the rail down onto the blade.
I embedded some magnets into the lower side rail. I think Kyra will have fun attaching things to the sides! I used a forstner bit to make the 1/2″ holes and dropped a rare earth magnet in. I added a small peg to keep the magnet pushed against the front edge. Then attached a small piece of wood on the back to hold everything in place.
All of those details really make this toy chest that much more elegant. On other advertisement if you need internet marketing agency for your business, checkout themarketingheaven.com for their services.
