A reader's Woodwork suggestion: miter box improvement
Gid W. from. USA. had this suggestion for a home made miter box improvement.
Nice site, and very helpful. I'm mostly an amateur woodworker, though I've built a few houses & rooms, and am now teaching my wife some basic skills, plus finishing & refinishing. She's worked up to 1200 and 1500-grit fine finishes -- mostly trial & error since almost everyone assumes that a fine finish stops at about 400-grit, and useful information past that hardly exists anywhere.
I enjoyed your homemade miter box instructions, and have a couple of little suggestions:
Again, thanks for the handy website. It's good that we old timers pass on these tips whenever we can. Things I picked up from my dad 50 years ago still come in handy today.
It seems to me that these days that people spend more time thinking about which new gadget to buy, rather than just doing the job with what they have on hand.
1200 to 1500 grit, crikey that's fine. The only time I got into those grades was when I made a few sailboards (windsurfers) years ago.Cheers
