  • fish bones box

    I had to put my ribbon and bow boxes aside so I could start this project.
    this is going to be a 50th birthday present for a co-worker of mine, he's also a fisherman...

    the box is cut from 1/4 maple and mahogany and it measures 3X5X7 inches





    I tried to do the fish as a inlay but I failed and I didn't have enough plained wood to do another one so I cut the fish out of 1/16 inch wood and glued it to the top and sanded it down where it barely sticks up...

        hey Jim, I was so close to having a perfect inlay until I cut the eye out, I forgot to have the wood on top to fall into the eye socket and then I lost focus and cut the last piece wrong and it fell throw it's hole

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

            I know it's just a basic box but it did turn out pretty good for what it was made for...
            I was thinking about putting a base or feet on it but I think this is the wrong style of box..

            I'm just glad to have this one off the list...

                  63? I used to be 63, but I was a kid then.

                      After you've made these mistakes, you become just paranoid enough to not make them again.

                      Still an awesome box....!!!

                          Great looking box Trout. And here after reading the heading on your post, I thought it would be a box for fish bones! Ok, sorry

                            At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                            The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                            Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
