  • New box

    Man, I see all these gorgeous boxes and bowls everyone are making, SQ! I'm kinda hesitant about posting my simple little things. But, here is the latest box I my for my daughters sister, her moms other daughter. Cut it out of 1/4" poplar. On the inside I took pieces of 1/8" plexi glass and coarse sanded both sides to get the frosted look. Hope you like it. Don

    Don, your box looks fantastic! Wonderful pattern. Sanding the plexiglass to make it look frosted was very clever. I have never make that kind of box and am wondering how you attached the sides of the box - glue? nails?

    That is a box to be proud of! I'm sure the recipient is going to be thrilled with it. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

          Great job Don. I like the frosted plexi idea. I have used that for a light I made for my bedroom. Thanks for sharing it with us.

                I think you did GREAT...luv the lettering used and 'frosting' the plexiglass. Keep up the great work and keep posting picts!

                                Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

                                OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.

                                OK folks, picture....I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here are a few of the autumn leaves I cut against the beautiful blue sky we had this morning.
