In need of knowledge

Would any of you kind people have a link or website of a tutorial for cantilevers. I have a request for a sewing box with cantilevers and I don’t want to waste anymore wood. :-). Thank you in advance.

Hi Jack
Not sure how cantilevers are incorporated in a box?

-- woodworking classes, custom furniture maker

Here’s one idea.


-- Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

This is the pic she sent me but by anchoring the cantilevers where these appear to be, it won’t open very well.

Just saw this. Hard to tell in this photo, but I suspect the long strap in the middle is actually 2 individual straps that move independently. Then it would work as intended.

Also, I don’t think it matters much where the pins go, but it’s critical that they align with each other in perfect squares / rectangles.
