Step 1: Step 1: Milling the Lumber
For the walkie talkies you'll need two pieces of these dimensions:
- Thickness: 23mm
- Width: 54mm
- Length: 11cm
After you've cut the Walkie Talkie blanks it's time for sanding.
Step 2: Step 2: Shaping of the Walkie Talkies
Round off the edges on the router.
After that you can drill the speakerholes. I made a mold because I was making more than one set. I made 16 holes with a 3mm bit.
Next drill a 6mm hole for the 6mm dowel as an antenna. The antenna is 6mm long. Glue it into the hole with woodglue.
For the knobs I used 15mm dowels and cut of a little knob. You'll need 3 knobs for one walkie talkie. Glue them on with woodglue.
Step 3: Step 3: Finishing
To finish the Walkie Talkies apply 3 coats of Mineral Oil and you're ready!
