          Beautiful box!! I love ceder.
          Here is an idea for your bow you may like. Cut several of your loops and sand a bevel on the bottom of both sides and glue them together in an arc. You can double cut the loops and use the extra pieces as fillers.
          My thanks to Steve Good for the inspiration.

                DW, great job on the box and ribbons are great! Did you create this using mitered corners or did you use the ring method?

                I have tried mitered joints but I stink at it! I have checked and checked and re-checked my saw (compound miter) and for some reason I cannot get a straight/square on anything...I think it's the operator - lol!

                  No I cut it out as rings. One I think for this small of a box it is much easier and two it is seamless so it looks better for a gift box for something like jewelry. I guess you could do mitered corners but without a sander to get perfect 45's it would be way to difficult

                    Nice job, DW. The plywood gives an interesting effect for the loops and ribbons, and whoever is the lucky recipient will love it. I agree that using miters for a box that small, without a sander to neaten things up, is only looking for trouble. I always use my belt sander, vertical, with the table tilted, to get usable miters.

                    Kim, if you have the bowl book, look at the construction of the lid for the ginger jar. That shows, in miniature, how to construct boxes where the lid becomes the sides of the box. All you have to do is add a base, and there you are!

                      Thanx DW & Carole! The only way I make boxes is the ring method, but in the photo it looked as if the grain was consistent giving the appearance as a solid piece of wood! Grain match up is spot on!!!

                      I am currently working on a box that uses birch plywood as the lid (cut to see the laminates)...so far I have been lucky to have no voids...keeping my fingers crossed that the rest of the cutting goes as well!

                      Ya Carole, I broke down and bought your bowl book (usually check them out from the library) as I knew that it would be an excellant guide even tho I have not attempted any bowls. I have been working on some new designs to where the lid creates the sides instead of my typical fitted lid...post picts if any of them turn out <fingers crossed>.
                      Thanx again!!!

                        None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                        What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                        The bags seem easier on the surface.
                        But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                        Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                        As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                        I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
