Latest School Project - Friction Fit Lid Box


Introduction: Latest School Project - Friction Fit Lid Box

Hey there guys. Just decided to post pics of my most recent school Resistant Materials (Well, it's really woodwork for this...) project. It is a friction-fit lidded box which measures 15x10x8 cm. The arrow design on top was my own unique work, as were tasked to use a decorative lid. Apart from saying it is made from soft wood (Specific tree unknown to me) there isn't much else to say. Enjoy!

    you should line it with some kind of soft foam or cloth

    i have a feeling the wood is pine. we are doing ( a variation on) this project, and that's what we are using (specific type of pine unknown to me )

    I would recomend using dovetail joins instead of finger ones

    they were probably tasked to make it with finger joints, given how simple they are.


    What is a friction-fitted lid??

    It's quite nice. Perhaps you might add information on how to *make* such a project. I personally have no idea how to make a friction-fitted lid, what kind of tolerance is necessary, what kind of tricks (if any) are helpful during construction. Thanks!

    I'd be happy to post instructions, if I could make another at school. I'll see :-)

    Nice. The decoration (less blu tac) is very effective.
