  • 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.

          Do you have room on a workbench for a 16" saw----that you can move and use the space for sanding or other operations? I have a larger area to work with then you, but I do have workbench type tools that I have to swap out the space for as the need arises. Sometimes you have to sit back and scope...

          I appreciate the input from everyone but, I need clarify to my work? space. I originally stated my area measures 6'X10' and, it does. But, I only have about 5'X5' of available space and, that's without taking myself into consideration.

          I'll add in some food for thought too. I was unsure if I would enjoy this hobby (addiction) so I started with the Porter Cable from Lowes. I think it is a good entry level saw, 5 months later I found an Excaliber on Craigs List and have been happy ever since.

          Food for thought, When I first started scrolling my thinking was "all I want to do is this and I will never do that as it doesn't interest me". I didn't know I would be working with SSWWC or get sucked into creating Intarsia or doing large intricate fretwork, like Charles Hand designs....
