  • 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.

                                Sweet looking display. Excellent examples of the puzzles.

                                Quarter inch BB with Red Gum (Australian Eucalyptus) veneer. My first attempt at veneering and there are a couple spots where there was not quit enough glue so small pieces of the veneer came off....

                                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
