  • 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.

                                Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                                Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                                The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
