Ship’s Bell

I’m making the Belfry for the Ship’s Bell.

It’s made out of 4×4 Walnut stock. Of course Mamoli didn’t really give me enough… Well, only just I suppose.

Beginning notching

I found the easiest way to make these notches is to press down on the Edges, then to shave off a bit of a time until you get the desired shape. I also use my little mini square file because it just do happens to be the ideal width of 2mm. (It’s actually around 2.5mm but it’s ok)

Almost done…
Clamping it all together.

I found a piece of plastic from a previous model and I just used it.
