Box Joint End Table

Post by nfortosis » Wed Mar 12, 2014 5:05 pm

Made a simple end table in Autodesk Inventor. Used stained pine project panels for the top and bottom and 3/4" MDF for the sides. Added some hairpins legs off Etsy and was good to go!

Did you chisel out the corners? I'm looking to do this myself but not sure how to get a sharp corner with a round bit. Thanks!

You can't get a sharp corner w/ a round bit in all axes. Options:

- rotate the work so that one can use the bottom and vertical edges of the end mill to create the 90 degrees needed
- re-design the work so that the rounded corner is hidden w/in the work, e.g., half-blind dovetails cut w/ a router using a template
- over-cut the corners, there's some discussion of that in the booklet mentioned at: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... her_Joints and http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... abrication
- use a chisel --- discussion of that here: http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic ... sel#p10194
- use some other tool such as a file
- re-work the design so that it can be cut w/ a V-bit which can lift up out of a cut in such a way as to leave a near 90 degree angle

I used a chisel to square the corners. It took way longer than I thought it would. I have been trying to figure out a way to do the rotation Will mentioned as that would be the most effective (you could probably manage some other pretty awesome joints with that setup too). I will probably try and cut a notch though my work surface.

Thanks for the info, folks. Unfortunately, most of it (aside from the chisel) is over my head at the moment. I clearly need to do some more reading!

Here is a project that I found that may help with your dilemma: link

I have never created anything with CNC equipment, but since I just ordered my SO2, I figured I should start looking around for projects to undertake. This may or may not help, but it should be worth looking at.

Note: as an aside, I was thinking of how to mill the joints in the way that Will mentioned in his post (" - rotate the work so that one can use the bottom and vertical edges of the end mill to create the 90 degrees needed"). The way that I came up with, conceptually, as least, is to have a hole/gap in your wasteboard, with a vise or something underneath (I found this online: link but it seems to be unavailable, and I have a similar craft-sized workbench by Wolfcraft, but it doesn't seem to be available anymore). Anyway, if you had your SO2 on a set of sawhorses, with a height adjustable work-table underneath (something like this from Wolfcraft), you could clamp your object in there so that the sides/ends are able to get milled with a standard end-mill). I know that this may not be possible with the wasteboards that many have created out of extrusions, etc, but where there is a will, there is a way I suppose....
