• (2) 5mm barrel hinges • (4) 6mm neodymium magnets (or similar size) • 3/8” neodymium magnet (or similar size) • CA glue • Wood of your choice: o 8”x4”x3/4” (or larger) for the bottom o 8x4x.50" (or larger) for the top o 8x3x.50" (or larger) for the middle piece o Scrap piece of wood 3/4" thick for the bit picker upper
• Shaper origin • 1/4” upcut spiral bit • 1/8” upcut spiral bit • 1/4” roundnose bit (optional, for the bit slots) • 1/4” 45° v-groove bit or router table with 45° chamfer bit (required for cutting the chamfer needed by the barrel hinges) • 1/8” roundover bit on router table (optional) • Small chisel for breaking tabs
See PDF file for more detailed instructions. In addition to the svg file's, I've also added the affinity designer source so you can change it at will. TL;DR version. 1. Adjust the design magnet hole sizes to match your magnets. 2. Cut the four pieces. 3. Apply finish. 4. Use CA glue to attach magnets and the hinge. The chamfer for the hinge is required, they need to be cut with the 45degree v-bit or later on a router table.
