Making some wood boxes
I set out to learn some wood-working basics, and decided to start with the basics: Boxes and wood joining techniques! Being me, i had to include some electronics. I decided to make one of the boxes appear to “hover”, as well as seemingly having a floating lid.
Making some finger joints on the band saw
Very inaccurate finger joints
Legs and lid plate
Making some 45* miter joints.
All cube side complete
Gaffa tape ftw
Creating an inside “floor” out of plexi glass
Elevated hinges for the lid
Had to counter sink the screws to allow the lid to close
Led wiring using WAY to thick wires
Alu foil to increase reflection
The lid is floating!
The floating of the box itself did not work so well because the legs block the even glow on the underside
pretty cool effect inside through the diffused plexi glass
