Weeks had passed since the first cut onto the large bamboo sheet. Now on to the final stages of the woodshop session.
However, the boxes are at its final stages and I am quite pleased with the looks of it. Weeks ago, it was merely in sketches, vector lines on the screen, and in pieces when the large plane of bamboo sheet was cut.
This blog entry goes as an accumulative of what was done throughout the week, rather than like previous post where it was divided into days.
The brass plates were bent, fixed in and worked well as the spring for it to raise the glass bowl. It bent into ‘gull wing’ shape, which is sturdy as a spring to raise the glass container. Plus, its easier to revise the shape should there be any need when it is fixed into the box.
Everything is ready. All there is left to do is to do 3 coats of Marine grade epoxy, and these should be ready for use.
All ends well, Thank you Ben for the fantastic help.
