I love accessories, but I always have a hard time when come across arranging and storing them. So for this assignment, I believe it is a good chance to make some containers to treat them nicely.
A simple design diagram.
Luckily I found a solid condition piece of wood in the junk shop which looks like it was used to built furniture. The only shortage of this piece of wood is its hardness, it was really hard for me to cut.
I cut the piece into 3 rows and each row contains 4 pieces, I chose one row (4 pieces) and horizontally cut though it so that 4 pieces became 8 shorter pieces, which eventually became my covers for the rest of 8 containers.
I marked each boxes and sanded them individually. It took me three hours on this task since I really want the box to have a shinny look. Some one them became my test samples, as shown in the pictures.
I borrowed a froster bit from my colleague for drilling holes.
I taped each boxes and mark the place where I drilled the pivot point. For drill bit I measured the diameter and chose the one that matches my measurement.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find the same size drill bit on the second day, I changed the plan and simply punch in some big nails I found in the shop for my pivot stick.
After being positioned, I used hammer to hammer in the nails. It was really hard for me to control the direction of my force on such small nail, some boxes were failed because the nails were torn and broke the wood.
