  • 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.

          He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

          Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

          It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
