My Bug Box Project

The making of the Bug Box

After designing my bug box, I started creating it in art. For the outside wood i used pinewood which is a softwood which makes it easier to work with. After cutting the wood to size, I used a belt sander at a 30 degree to sand the wood for sides of a hexagon. Before glueing the wood together so I had a empty wooden hexagon, I drilled 13 holes into one of the sides then inserted cut up dowelling. Once I had completed that, I cut the three inside pieces of wood down to size then sanded them down so they had a 120 degree angle point. I then joined them at the centre with wood glue before inserting them into the outside hexagon sides and securing them with glue. I started making the roof tiles next. I cut U shapes out of thin sliver birch I had found in a forest
