Transcript of DT Hinge Project

Day 1:
After Mr.Hann explained all the instructions/steps and gave us the outline sheet, he gave us many quizzes before actually using each tool so we were aware of all the safety hazards and are cautious of the dangers and knew exactly what to do and avoid any accidents because it's better to be safe than sorry!
Day 2:
After finishing my labeling and drawing my guidelines on the base/front face of the wood, I also have to label the sides of the wood. I wrote the correct measurements at the sides. Then i drew an X to mark the spot of the sides from the guideline to the top side of the wood. Then i drew an semi-oval from the 2'2 guideline at the side of the wood and i curve the end as it reaches the top and making it look like half of an oval. After drawing the semi-oval, I drew a dot in the middle where the two lines that formed the "X" intersect. The dot represents where i will use a center punch to mark where we will punch the hole.
Day 7:
After cutting, we are left with ragged and rough edges, well in this step we have to use a file to make the the edges of the cuts smoother and rounder. Now the semi-oval that you drew earlier on the side of the wood becomes helpful. As I file, the file slowly removes the layers of the wood to form a round edge. When i was filing at first, I wasn't filing in "one direction" (common joke Mr. Hann says). Then i started filing in "One Direction" and you could really see a smooth difference. Once the edge was no more and the sides were smooth and round, it's time to sand! We had to sand all over the in progress hinge/wood and erase the lines with the sand paper. Once the in-progress hinge/ wood was smooth and round, it's time for step 7.
Day 8:
Once, you are done filing and sanding, you probably have realized that your sides aren't smooth... Well, in this step you will use the belt disk sander to smooth and perfect the sides of your in-progress hinge/ wood. Using the belt disk sander looked scary at first because the belt moved very quickly and made a lot of noise but once i started moving my in-progress wood back and forth, it was quite fun and easy. And most importantly, my sides are smooth!

This is my prezi for my written component of the DT hinge project. It displays all the work and steps I've done to reach the finished product!
Step One:
Mr. Hann provided us with a long plank of wood and we all measured the wood and cut it into equal pieces for our hinge projects. We chose each of our pieces even though it doesn't matter because they are all the same and wrote our names on them. Then we cut the pieces and had our individual piece of wood to work with.

Remember to wear goggles at all times when in the DT Lab
Many fellow students(not saying names) including me forgot to wear goggles in the beginning of class...And Mr. Hann reminded us. Thank you, Mr. Hann!

Step 2:
Now that we had our wood, it was time for measurements! We used the outline sheet Mr. Hann had given to us, the day he introduced us to this project. Using the outline sheet, we labelled all the measurements. Sometimes we make mistakes that we don't even notice. Well, i measured and marked 2 instead of 1.25. I didn't notice at first and then Mr. Hann told me, and i fixed my mistake and went back to Mr. Hann if i labelled my scraps, tongue pieces and grooves correctly. Once he approved it was time for Step 5...

In this step, I drilled a hole on the right side of the tongue using the drill press. The hole was supposed to go right through the X mark, but since i had drilled a smaller hole than it actually should be. Mr. Hann had noticed my error and showed me where i had gone wrong, I went back and fixed my mistake.
Step 4:

Step 5:
I started to cut my wood using the guidelines that i had drawn already from the previous steps. I started to cut a little from the right side when i realized that cutting from the right side is more difficult than cutting from the left side. But now that i started cutting from the right side, i guess i have to finish what i started cutting. So i first cut all the way until the bottom of the tongue and then i did the exact same cut except from the left side. Then i cut vertically to the bottom of the tongue's corner where i had ended cutting from both sides. The remaining scrap pieces were thrown into the scarp box.

After Cutting the Wood
Step 6:
Step 5:
While cutting, I cut too far into the outside of my scrap which meant i was cutting on the wood part that i needed for the hinge. Initially, i should have stayed in the scrap zone and kept a little distance from the actual wood part that i need for the hinge. I trimmed it off to make it even.

Day 9:
This was a very simple and easy step. All we have to do is use the guidelines and find the center line and cut. Once again, the band saw is in use. We are almost done, Yay!
Cut the wood into two and now can move on with finalizing my hinge by adding a dowel and adding finishing touches.

Step 9:

The last major step of the hinge was to glue in the dowel. This part of the project seemed difficult and tricky when Mr. Hann was explaining it to the class. To glue the dowel in correctly, you place the dowel in the groove without the tongue and mark the top of the groove and the bottom of the top hole with a pencil. Then you take out the dowel add glue to the hole in the bottom of the groove and then place it into the tongue. You place the dowel back until you see the marks meet with the hinge. You place glue in that area to make it secure. You push the dowel all the way to the bottom and make sure you used enough glue. Then you use the Dowel sniper and snip/cut off the extra/remaining of the dowel at the top and then you sand off the extra remaining dowel using the belt disk sander. And there you have it! Your very own hinge, but you aren’t quite done yet.

Finishing Touches
Step 10
The very last finishing touches before handing in my hinge project was stamping my name onto the hinge by using letter punches and a hammer to lightly hit the punches into the wooden hinge which leaves a dent behind in the shape of a letter and all those letters form my name.
