Hi, this is a special video, because it is part of Woodworking Europe Collaboration Build 2015. First of all I want to give thanks to Lluis Martinez, Karol Kolanowski and Peter Freitag for inviting me to take part. This collaboration consist in picking one item, special to our region, and make something to display it. Once we edit the video, we all publish it at the same time. So, below this video, in the information, you can find the list with all the participating, and the links to their videos. Every country and region has its legends, often with evil spirits that harm the living. But here, in Galicia, in the Northwest of Spain, we have a potion and a ritual to put off those evil spirits. We call that potion queimada, and it is a beverage that we prepare in one of this earthenware pots burning a kind of moonshine, sugar and some other ingredients. I have the secret to make a tasty queimada, and maybe one day I will show how to make it in one video. But in this video I will make a glass cabinet to display this earthenware pot, that is very traditional here in Galicia. first I cut the strips to the length I need. I cut the four vertical pieces 30cm long. I adjust the fence again, and I cut the 8 horizontal pieces 40cm long. Now I lift the saw disc until it protrudes 15mm And I adjust the fence to cut 15 millimetres, too. I cut a rebate in all the pieces. So, now I have all 12 pieces with a rebate, and I also have all this strips that I will use later to hold the glasses. I had to rasp the interior corners, because I had something like half millimetres uncut. Then, this is one side of the cabinet. And in one end of the 40 centimetres long pieces I will cut a rebate like this, so they fit in the corners this way. Here I put another 40cm long piece, so we can see I just need to cut that shape in one end of all the 40cm long pieces. I adjust the height of the blade. I use a stop block to cut the width I need. And I cut a rebate in one end of the 40cm long pieces. After some test I get a nice cut that fits perfectly. I just need to repeat it 8 times. And I only needed to retouch them slightly with a chisel. I arrange all the pieces to make the shape of the cabinet, carefully so they do not collapse. And I mark the position in all the pieces. I mark the same number in the end of every two strips that are in the same joint. I draw one arrow pointing to the joint, and the same number to each side. And I do the same with all the joints. The arrow shows me where to put the dowels. Then, with a 6mm drill bit, I drill a couple of holes in the 40cm long pieces. I will put the dowels in the head of this pieces. So, I drill a couple of holes in both ends of all 8 strips. I drill 32 holes. Now, following the numbering, I mark the sides of the short pieces. I put the dowel centres. And with the help of another strip I mark in the right place. It is better if I put the numbers facing the table. Carefully, I make all the marks. And I drill a hole in all 32 marks. Now I want to put a dowel in that piece of wood that protrudes the head of the strips. So, first I have to drill in the other end of the strips, right here. After that I will mark where to drill. Now I drill the 8 holes I need. I must remember that the numbers show the first holes I drilled before. And this is the new hole I drilled. This will go against this corner I am putting together. I put the dowel centre in the hole. And I mark in the corner. And there is where I have to drill. I must make sure I select the right numbers to each joint. And one by one I make the 8 marks I need. And I drill the 8 holes. But it is not a bad idea to check if I am precise. I drill all the holes. I slightly sand all the cuts in the head of the strips. And I glue all the parts together. I pour some glue in the holes, and in the dowels, and in the head of the strips. And I put all the parts together. Due to the position of the dowels, I had to force the structure, so all the pieces fit. And because I needed a lot of time, the glue began to dry, so I had to be some more aggressive to get all the dowels into the holes. With a couple of straps I hold the structure while the glue dries. I should use some clamps at 90 degrees with the straps, but I only made sure all the joints where closed, without gaps. I cleaned the excess of glue. And I made sure everything was squared. And I let it dry overnight. Once the glue dries I remove the straps. I check the joints. And I can see how the pot will look inside the cabinet. To make the top door and the base I will use these strips. And I want to centre them there. They protrude 6 millimetres to each side. So I add 12mm to the width of the cabinet. I miter cut one end of the 8 pieces I need. In one end of the strips I mark the length I need, that is the width of the cabinet plus 12 millimetres. And I miter cut it. And I use it to cut the other 7 pieces right to the same length. I sand the cuts, I clean, and I glue the parts. I use that strap to clamp the square. I make sure it is a perfect square. And I make a second square. And now, it is time to begin with the worst part, sanding everything. I sand it with medium grit sandpaper. I clean the dust, and I now I use fine grit sandpaper. I sand, until I cannot see the marks of the medium grit sandpaper. And finally I use that sanding block, that is the finest grit that I have, slightly sanding the sharp edges. And when the glue is dry I also sand the two squares. This s the difference before and after sanding. And now I cut four circles. And I sand them with my disc sander. And finally I sand them by hand. The legs of the cabinet will go below these circles. I use these finials curtain rods to make the legs. I cut them with an angle of 20 degrees. With this jig, and the pencil mark, I can cut four equal legs. I have another four finials curtain rods that I will use as a decoration on top of the cabinet. That is a piece of the curtains rod that I glued in the hole of the finials. I use my sanding block to slightly sand all the pieces. And, after sanding the cabinet structure, the window and the base, the circles and all these pieces, … my arms hurt. I need some rest, … and a cup of coffee. I cut that square of plywood, and I sanded it. It goes in the base of the cabinet. I route a rebate to fit the glass in the window. First with a bit with a bearing. Then I cut the rebate deeper and wider, with a straight bit and the router fence. And with a chisel I cut the corners. The glass goes there. And I hold it with some strips. I had to cut those longer strips to use them to hold the glass in the window. Besides, I have the strips I cut in the beginning of this video These square strips are to hold the glasses in the structure. These are rectangular, to fit the rebate in the window. They go there, and I miter cut them. I crosscut the strips that hold the glasses in the structure. I cut them to the right measure, and I number them to know where to put them later. I drill two guide holes in all the strips. And with this thin nail I mark where to drill the guide holes in the window and in the structure. And I drill the guide holes in the window. Now, with that simple jig I can put those finials all in the same position. I drill a couple of dowel holes in the corners of the window. With the help of the jig, and the dowel centres, I mark the finials. And with the help of the jig I used to cut them, I drill the holes in the finials. I insert the dowels with some glue, and I put all four pieces in place. I put some glue in the base of the finials I cut before in angle. And I eyeball to put them on the circles. I do not use dowels here. I eyeball to put them on the circle, and then I measure to put them more or less in the same position. And I let them dry. Once the glue dries I drill a guide hole in each leg. And I secure them with one screw. These will go here, in the corners of the second square I made. I put some glue on the corners. And with the help of the jig we saw before, plus a couple of strips, I put all them right in the same position. I try to align the inclination of the leg with the line of the miter joint. I glue them, and I let them dry. In the meanwhile, I measure and mark the position for the hinges. And I insert there a couple of points. I put the window in place, measuring to make sure I centre it. And I press against the points, to mark the position for the hinges. I remove the points, and I drill the holes for these hinges. And I drill in the structure the guide holes, to screw the strips that will hold the glasses. Now, once the glue in the circles is dry, I drill two guide holes. I drill inclining the bit, drilling towards the leg. With a larger drill bit I slightly counterbore the holes, to hide the screw head. And I drive the screws. If some of the screws protrude the wood, I file the head. I put the structure on the base. I put them upside-down. And I measure to centre the base. I drill guide holes. And I attach both parts with screws. I put the square piece of plywood in place, and I prepare to varnish. I insert those bended nails so I can put that side down after I varnish it. I varnish everything with spray. I make sure I varnish every part, I let it dry, I slightly sand, and I spray a second coat. And I let it dry. Now, very carefully, I can put the glasses in place. And I screw the strips to hold the glasses. I install the hinges in the window, inserting them with the help of a clamp. I put the glasses in the structure, while I put in place the strips, and I screw them. I put the window in place. And I fit in the hinges. And finally I can put the queimada pot inside the display cabinet. Those circles, and the decorations on the top, try to imitate some characteristic parts in a traditional building here in Galicia, the horreos, a kind of raised granary. Thanks for watching! Remind that in the information below this video you can find a list with all the participating in this collaboration, and the links to watch the projects they made. hmmm, I think a small greenhouse could come in handy.
