  • Desk/box thingy christmas gift

    Here is a desk or mantel gift I made as a Christmas gift for my son. He is a BMW fan, has had many over the years.

    It has a clock, thermometer and hydrometer, and a BMW emblem (a Roundel) on the lid. Got the Roundel off Craigs List.

    Made from 1" maple burl, and finished with tung oil. Size is about 6" wide 7" tall and 5" deep. Approximate dimensions since I forgot to measure it when finished.

        Thanks Catlyn. I have a little more of that wood, trying to think of how to use the rest of it.

                    Thanks Betty.

                    Found 1" slabs at Global Wood Source. I have no way to rip any myself so I grabbed a couple, around two square feet each. Kind of hard to find thin slabs.

                          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.
