  • Petal-Perfect Rose Box - Warped lid

    Can any one suggest a reason why the lid would have warped on the box? Have recently completed 2 Rose Boxes. (2009 Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts By Robert Ardizzoni) both boxes were cut from the same length of Walnut board in Oct and Nov '11. After completion both boxes were finished with gloss spray and looked fabulous. Both boxes were in same area of house and the lid on one box now has warped and rocks back and forth like a rocking chair. Is there a way to correct this? Or suggestions on how to prevent it from happening again?

      Do you have a moisture reader? The moisture content could have been too high.

        Were both sides of the lids and the edges sprayed, and with the same number of layers on both sides? I had a flat piece of oak where I put one coat of Danish Oil on the bottom and more than one coat on the top - over a few months in the laundry room, it curled up like a "C" -- so I took it back to the garage and put a LOT more oil on both sides - just left it sit, without any weights, and a couple of weeks later, it was flat again.

          Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

          Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

          Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

          Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

          I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

          Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
